Ben Elton's best selling novel-turned-play, POPCORN, will make its Northern California premiere at the Actors Theatre of San Francisco.
With a lightning-quick pace, POPCORN skewers film directors like Quentin Tarantino and Oliver Stone while posing a serious question: In a society fascinated by murder, is there any such thing as a responsible person? Bruce Delamitri, makes movies about killers. Great movies, stylish movies. His killers are style icons. Getting shot by one of them would be a fashion statement. Wayne and Scout are actual killers. Real ones. Low rent, low brow, morality-free zones.
One night, one Oscar-winning night, when Bruce has the world at his feet, Wayne and Scout hijack his life. They have decided that it is time Bruce faced up to his responsibilities. Fact confronts fiction in the heart of Beverley Hills and a terrible siege begins.
