Popcorn

Author: Ben Elton

Summary: Popcorn is a very funny black comedy, a thrill-a-minute hostage drama, a satirical look at the Hollywood system and at the culture of all blame and no responsibility. It has glamour, guns, gore, sex, drugs, vigorous discussions and men in underwear! Hollywood director and egomaniac Bruce Delamitri arrives home one morning with his Oscar under one arm and latest starlet Brooke under the other to discover Wayne and his girlfriend Scout, the Mall Murderers, in residence. Also present are the wife, the daughter, the sleazy producer and a television crew and then... you'll just have to come and see it! Written by British comedy icon Ben Elton, the play won the Olivier award for Best West-End Comedy. Elton is famous for co-writing the Eighties comedies The Young Ones and Blackadder as well as several best-selling novels, including Popcorn. He also wrote the libretto for Queen, the musical.
