Matt & Ben

by Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers

Matt & Ben Poster

Long ago in the mysterious land of Boston, two Mass-holes and life-long friends got together to write the GREATEST script in the history of cinema. Or did they?

One day, as future A-listers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck struggle to adapt J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye into a screenplay, the script for Good Will Hunting falls from the sky. What follows is Matt & Ben, a one-act satirical comedy that examines artistic and moral integrity with the help of some famous surprise guests, unsubtle references to Aristotle’s Poetics, and quite a bit of toxic masculinity. This show is fundamentally about finding and seeking artistic fulfillment, personal confidence, and joy in the absurdity of life through friendship and communication.

This one-night-only production is a commitment to playfulness, collaboration, and fun theatre for fun’s sake.
