I love to write comedy, and much of my published work is humorous, so I wanted to participate in a festival that only considers comedies. I was delighted to learn the script would get a reading. There is no better tool for honing a script than hearing it read by talented actors.
Doyle Tipton is a successful playwright and author, but her name causes most people to think she’s a man. She has the chops to make it as a bigtime book writer for stage musicals, but she’s never actually had a success in this area. Every time she proposes a concept to a band, they hem and haw and steal the idea without including the woman book writer. Finally, Doyle calls in a favor and gets hired, sight unseen, to write the book for a musical based on the catalog of Larry Limpet and the Lizards, a multi-platinum band that hit huge in the eighties. The only problem is, Larry Limpet is a male chauvinist in the truest style, and Doyle Tipton isn’t taking any of his shit.
