Doubt by John Patrick Shanley, Pulitzer and Tony Award Winner This gripping story of suspicion is less about scandal than about fascinatingly nuanced questions of moral certainty.

Moonlight and Magnolias by Ron Hutchinson When the screenplay for his new epic, “Gone With the Wind,” doesn't work, legendary producer David Selznick sends for famed screenwriter Ben Hecht and pulls formidable director Victor Fleming from the set of "The Wizard of Oz."
