Description - Swimming with Sharks by George Huang

From bringing him coffee to getting him laid, it's up to new assistant and aspiring screenwriter Guy to satisfy every whim of the incendiary Buddy Ackerman, powerful movie producer and the boss from hell. Blinded by the promise of a fast track up the Hollywood ladder, Guy is about to find out that moviemaking is not for the faint-hearted. If he's going to rise to the top, then he'll need to play by Buddy's rules. And Buddy plays dirty. Swimming with Sharks, adapted from the George Huang film by playwright Michael Lesslie, is an incisive look into the cut-throat world of Hollywood. The play had its world premiere at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, on 5 October 2007.

Author Biography - George Huang

George Huang is a Taiwanese-American filmmaker. He wrote and directed his debut film, Swimming with Sharks, which starred Kevin Spacey and Frank Whaley. Released in 1994, the film was a biting satire of Hollywood politics from the point-of-view of a studio underling. Although not a major box-office smash, the movie received huge critical acclaim. Michael Lesslie adapted The Constant Prince for the stage which completed an acclaimed international tour before transferring to both London's Arcola Studio and the Oxford Playhouse in 2005.
