A one of a kind comedy! The play first premiered in 2003, starring the authors and actresses Mindy Kaling and Brenda Withers. The show investigates a theory behind the writing of the award-winning screenplay Good Will Hunting (written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck). Played by two women, the fast- paced and entertaining one-act play depicts Hollywood’s golden boys Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, also known as Jason Bourne and Batman. Truly, before anyone actually cared they were just Matt & Ben, two college boys who couldn’t be more different. But they shared one big dream – Fame!“Absolutely delightful and deliciously spiteful! Sharp and clever, Matt & Ben succeeds!” – The New York Times“A hit! Acidic, funny and affectionate! Matt & Ben spoofs Hollywood’s best friendship!” – The New York Post
