INT.

BERKSHIRE PLAYWRIGHTS LAB OFFICE - NIGHT

Co-artistic directors JOE CACACI, JIM FRANGIONE, BOB JAFFE, and MATT PENN, looking tired and worn, sit, stand or wander the room dazed. It’s midnight.

JIM How much longer?

MATT Until we think of an original idea. BOB We’ve already thought of a bunch. MATT But they were lousy! Come on, guys. It’s Our annual appeal. 2010 and 11, we wrote Plays. Last year, an original song. How do we top ourselves? BOB We go directly to people’s houses! MATT What? How could we possibly get to that many places? Strap up the reindeer and-I’ve got it!

JOE

The others look at him in anticipation. WE’LL MAKE A MOVIE!

Finally…

JOE (CONT’D)
