Fast-talking, gag cracking hilarity!

The unforgettable Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn were just two of the stars of the Screwball Comedies that were so hugely popular in Hollywood in the 1930s and 40s. Fast-talking, gag cracking hilarity that had them rolling in the aisles back in the day, has now been given an update and made even funnier by playwright Norman Foster. Paying homage to those zany Screwball Comedy is full of snappy period dialogue, outrageous characters, and humour that packs a punch! The story follows Mary trying to break into the male-dominated world of newspapers. The Editor-in-Chief sets a writing competition between her and his egotistical star reporter Jeff for the top job, and comedy ensues.
