Moonlight and Magnolias

Discover the (almost) true story of the making of Gone With the Wind.

A riotous farce that’s 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.

“Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn”

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.

Join us for this laugh-out-loud comedy that’ll be just the tonic you need this Spring.

Please note, this production will contain peanuts and bananas (Selznick’s ‘brain food’ of choice). If you have any severe allergies, please speak to the Box Office for advice on booking.
