Game Show
Game Show
By Lew Riley.

Cast: 5m., 5w. "Even the audience wins at Game Show," was the headline from the critic's review in the Los Angeles Times. This comedy goes behind the scenes and then in front of the cameras as it follows five fascinating contestants: a fidgety Vietnam veteran; a know-it-all senator's assistant; a cocky young filmmaker; a dizzy housewife/author; and a bubbly senior citizen—from the time they meet backstage at a popular game show until one of them wins the grand prize. Who wins the big money is one of Game Show's several compelling subplots. Another is the possibility of a rekindled romance between one of the contestants and the show's production assistant. And then there are the hilarious antics of the game show's narcissistic emcee and his beautiful bimbo of an assistant. Who was the only bachelor president? What boy dubbed Lauren Becall's voice when she sang in To Have and Have Not? What was unusual about Babe Ruth's uniform when he hit 60 home runs? These and other intriguing questions are answered during Game Show, a warm and witty look at an American institution—the television game show. Please note that this play has some strong language which may be deleted. Two int. sets.
