Fancy a night out to the Theatre?
Updated: Feb 24
The Nottingham Playhouse has kindly given us some tickets to their upcoming comedy Moonlight and Magnolias on Thursday 27 February, 7:30pm.
This (almost) true story of the making of Gone With the Wind is a riotous farce full of laughter. Moonlight and Magnolias takes you behind the scenes as three movie masters set about creating one of the biggest Hollywood blockbusters of all time.
Just three weeks into filming, Gone With the Wind is in trouble. Desperate times call for drastic measures, so legendary producer David O. Selznick shuts down production, pulls director Victor Fleming from the set of The Wizard of Oz and hires script-doctor Ben Hecht to save the film. But, there’s a catch. The men have just five days to rewrite the script from scratch and Hecht is one of the very few people in the whole of America who hasn’t actually read the best-selling novel.
Tempers will fray, egos will clash and wits will truly reach their end as the trio battle to achieve cinematic greatness in this love letter to the silver screen.
A limited number of tickets are available and will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Tickets are available for ArtSpeak members only. If you would like a ticket please get in touch with us at Artspeak@radfordcaregroup.org.uk
If you accept a ticket and are then not able to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that your ticket can be given to someone else.
