Movie mogul David O. Selznick has just shut down his mega-budget version of Gone With the Wind. Determined to produce a rewrite in five days, he engages the reluctant services of ace script doctor, Ben Hecht (possibly the only one in America who hasn’t read the novel) and a new director, Victor Fleming, poached from the set of The Wizard of Oz. Selznick locks himself in his office with his two collaborators, and a marathon creative session begins.

'I and You' is a witty and uplifting portrayal of friendship, youth and living life to the full, and won the coveted American Theatre Critics Association’s New Play Award.

Housebound because of illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Facebook for company. That is until classmate Anthony bursts in – uninvited and armed with waffle fries, a scruffy copy of Walt Whitman’s poetry and a school project due in the next day… Caroline is unimpressed all round.

But an unlikely friendship develops and a seemingly mundane piece of homework starts to reveal the pair’s hopes and dreams - as well as a deep and mysterious bond that connects them even further.

Rehearsed play reading Directed by Blair Purkiss
Starring Albertine Jonas and Haanz Fa’avae
