About Screwball Comedy
2017 World Premiere by Norm Foster
Set in 1938, the story centres around Mary Hayes, a budding reporter trying to break into the male dominated newspaper world. She barges into the offices of Editor-In-Chief Bosco Godfrey who is reading the riot act to his star reporter Jeff Kincaid. Fed up with Jeff’s indigent ways and lackluster performance, Bosco sets a competition between the seasoned reporter and Mary to cover a society wedding. If Jeff writes up to snuff, he gets to keep his job. If Mary wins, she gets to replace him. Full of snappy period dialogue reminiscent of the best cinematic screwball comedies, this World Premiere sparkles with humour and packs a punch.
Screwball Comedy is such fun. Amazing acting with half the cast deftly taking on multiple roles. The ingenuous sets perfectly fit the era down to the office window glass and Art Deco bar on wheels. Mr. Foster has created a swell romp with modern innuendoes. Hilarious entertainment for all ages.
