Cable TV, Playstation, money and an Oscar…
because it’s important to have goals
In this satirical romp, two actresses play Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, long-time friends on the brink of fame. We encounter the two in Ben’s apartment in suburban Boston, in the 1990’s, just before these golden boys of Hollywood made it big. Placing women into the roles of these two famous men is secondary to the hilarity in the script. When the screenplay for Good Will Hunting mysteriously drops from the sky, they take it as a test from God. As they struggle with this moral conundrum, the audience experiences an up-close view of their friendship, including physical tussles, face slapping, and some awkward high school flashbacks.

DICK KEREKES & LEISLA SANSOM, eu Jacksonville, say:
Two very talented local actresses play all the roles, with KAT McLEOD cast as Matt and ABIGAIL SAENZ as Ben. They are line-perfect throughout, as they argue, sing, and joke with each other and at times run maniacally around the stage.
