Hollywood screenwriter Herbert Tucker is down on his luck. Struggling with writer’s block, his career is on the skids. One day, his daughter Libby, an aspiring New York actress who he abandoned nearly 20 years previously, turns up unannounced at his front door.
His conscience pricked by Libby’s out-of-the-blue appearance, Herbert thinks he can make her dreams of cinematic stardom become reality. Libby, meanwhile, thinks she can return the favour by getting her dad back together with Steffy, his long-suffering on-off girlfriend.
Paul Jepson directs this touching, poignant, and typically funny Neil Simon drama and you can listen to an interview with Paul below.
