In this adaptation of director James Andrew Walsh’s stage play, Drew Droege stars as James, a middle-aged playwright who invites a legendary TV diva as well as his occasionally-working actor friend Jay (Michael Urie) to read and critique his latest dramatic effort. When Jay brings along his new lover, the competing egos gathered are a recipe for a lightning storm. As alliances form and wither over the course of the tense weekend, the delicious real-life drama far exceeds anything James could put on the page.
