Additional Info

In 1939, an intimidating and inscrutable director named Hatch, who is more than a little reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock, calls the young leading actress in his movie into his office for a conversation that will first make her uncomfortable, then horrify and finally enrage her. Is he trying to seduce her, bully her, blackmail her or is something else going on? Sinister and funny. A possible companion piece to Nigro' s Hitchcock Blonde. In The Watchers & Other Plays.
