Name that film!

Prescott Film Festival,

Yavapai College, Building 3, Room 119

A Few Good Lines is coming, for free, to the Prescott Film Festival at Yavapai College on the afternoon of  June 13th. This delightful production features JC Lawler and Paige LaForte and is directed by Patrick David DuHaime who employs special effects to bring my play to life. Heck, if you live in The Valley, why not escape the heat and come enjoy the whole film festival? Check out the whole program here.

 

How often do you reply in conversation with a line from a movie? “Here’s lookin’ at you kid,” “I’ve a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore,” or maybe “Do. Or do not. There is no try.” Mary and Peter are writing a screenplay. And all Peter does is "stir the tanks" when what the @$#%&? Suddenly, the only words coming out of their mouths are lines from classic movies. During the play those who wish to get a chance to identify movies from which the lines are taken. Those who identify the most lines get a prize!
