A hilarious new mockumentary in the Christopher Guest tradition, Maybe There’s A Tree suggests that the American theater is indeed on its deathbed. When Sully Sulenberger’s emergency landing turns their play Hero on The Hudson into a prophetic overnight hit, Johnny Steele and Mike Deuce are suddenly the toast of the town… theatrical soothsayers who become the subject of a grad school documentary.Graced with free space, funding, and a flood of new collaborators, the two set out to show the world - and a rival feminist theater company, A Womb of One’s Own - that they are, in fact, the next big thing. What follows is the ridiculous rise of a downtown theater company who prove once and for all that intelligence and talent are just big words artsy people use to keep you down.
Featuring Creed Bratton (The Office) as the Theatre Academic, Colin Mochrie (Whose Line Is It Anyway?) as Mr. Deuce, and Kathryn Kates (Orange is the New Black) as Mrs. Deuce. Costumes were designed by Olga Mill (Boardwalk Empire) and James Bolenbaugh (Orange is the New Black) handled production design.
