Matt & Ben

Written by Mindy Kaling & Brenda Withers
Directed by Matt Bassett

Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Before they were stars, they were just struggling actors and best friends looking for a break, when suddenly a script to a movie named Good Will Hunting magically appeared in Ben’s apartment with both their names on it. A gift from god? A deal with the devil? This hilarious look at friendship and the lure of success is co-written by Mindy Kaling (star of The Office and creator of The Mindy Project). Check out the script that launched her to super-stardom!

Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mix-Tape of the 90’s

Conceived and Directed by Jason Schlafstein
Performances at The Writer’s Center

An original, devised show out of the brain of Flying V’s Producing Artistic Director and in the spirit of The Best of Craigslist and the Flying V Fights series; this theatrical mix-tape is an exploration of Memory, Nostalgia, and Transition through a  night of live action music videos set to the soundtrack of that totally Awesome decade – the 90’s. Featuring puppetry, dance, live music, and astounding feats of physicality, this devised show takes us back to a time of flannel, slap bracelets, and Saturday morning cartoons, while asking the question of who we are now.
