Time Magazine: Top 5 Plays of the Year

Winner! 2002 New York International Fringe Festival, Best Overall Production

Matt & Ben by Mindy Kaling & Brenda Withers, depicts its Hollywood golden boys – before J-Lo, before Gwyneth, before Project Greenlight, before Oscar...before anyone actually gave a damn. When the screenplay for Good Will Hunting drops mysteriously from the heavens, the boys realize they're being tested by a Higher Power.
