Jeff and Hunter have a dream " and that dream is for their work to be selected for the upcoming New York Musical Theatre Festival.

The submissions deadline is only three weeks away, and our heroes dont actually have a musical to perform. But thats not going to get in their way " because they have a whole three weeks to write it.

Recruiting two more friends to work with them, they embark on their journey, full of naive hope and wild optimism - even if nobody can come up with a killer name for the show.

Excitement mounts; if the show is a hit, they could replace the four ugly mismatched chairs on the set with chairs covered in diamonds.

And then ... their little three-week-old musical defies the odds and is CHOSEN for the prestigious slot, and whats more when it comes to performance time, fancy industry people are in the audience.

The show is a HIT. Plans progress toward taking the musical to Broadway ...but thats when the egos start to clash, and everything begins to unravel

The more successful they become, the more the four begin to drift apart, and to wax nostalgic over younger, happier, less complicated days.

Will they remember that their relationship and the quality of their creation are more important to them than commercial success? And more importantly " will they ever get their diamond chairs?

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
