THE SCREENWRITER DIES OF HIS OWN FREE WILL

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Written by Jim Shankman, Directed by Craig J. George

The acclaimed new metafictional comedy on the art of the deal was called “overwhelmingly brilliant,” “laugh-out-loud funny,” “hilariously on-target,” “a damn good one act,” and “fascinating” by critics.

Willy Shotz is a heavyweight screenwriter. Producers kill for his stylish violence and gritty sci-fi. But Willy is facing the big deadline in the sky, which has given him a new vision of art and cinema and a new screenplay to go with it. Can he overcome the indignities of his illness to pitch his craftiest foe? Can he talk art like a man with his boyhood friend and sell this script before his expiration date? The Screenwriter Dies Of His Own Free Will is a two character metafictional comedy on the art of the deal.
