Playwright Moss Hart was one of Broadway’s biggest stars who co-wrote the hit comedies You Can’t Take It With You and The Man Who Came to Dinner.

A new play is about to have its first out-of-town tryout and assembled in a suite at the Ritz-Carlton are the leading lady, the naive playwright, the emotional director, the vulgar producer and his ice-skater wife. Everything is love and kisses and toasts to the “magic time” of theatre. But when they return to the hotel after the show, things aren’t quite as rosy.
