MAGNUM OPUS THEATRE
selected by Vanessa Claire Perkins
directed by Joe Jordan

Every week, hundreds of untrained writers from around the world
send their unsolicited, unregistered scripts to Hollywood production
companies in the hopes that their story will rise above the rest to be
made into a feature film. Most never even get read... until now.
