A wealthy first-time Broadway producer, Julia Budder, is throwing an opening night party for THE GOLDEN EGG at her luxurious Manhattan home. 

The playwright, Peter Austin, is joined by the director, a lead actor, and assorted friends and hangers-on (including a critic) as they nervously wait for the late-night reviews printed in the newspapers. 

It’s alternatively raucous, ridiculous and tender – and proves that sometimes the biggest laughs happen offstage. The Associated Press called the play a ‘maliciously funny diatribe about the desperate and demented business of producing a play on Broadway’.
