Two basement-dwelling hack writers concoct a scheme to create the most-produceable play in America, which quickly degenerates into a contest to see who can write the worst play imaginable. The hilariously disastrous results range from a "message" play about the dangers of huffing to a Seussian global warming drama about Eskimos. And it gets worse from there.
