Cast: 10m., 10w. Idealistic all-American journalism student Ida Perry has been offered a prestigious internship by her famous college professor, but the bottom falls out of her dream. The news from her parents is very bad. Her father has been laid off from his job and Ida not only has to pay her own way through college but she must contribute to the need at home. The only part-time job she can get is working for the cheesy/sleazy Metro Inquirer, probably the most scandalous newspaper in history. "Man Eats Own Face" is her first example of a headline as another reporter greets her with, "How do you spell lascivious?" But never underestimate the power of a bright girl caught between a rock and a hard place. She becomes as much a surprise to the Metro Inquirer as it is to her. Start the presses and bring this media mania to the stage. With a rainbow of colorful characters, this is sure to be a hit. One int. set.
