Description The Pitch is a hilarious satire about the trials and tribulations of trying to crack the big time in Hollywood. Peter Houghton's brilliant show was critically acclaimed and a huge hit in Melbourne in 2006 and 2007 and was awarded two prestigious Green Room Awards for performance and for best new play.
The Pitch is set in the very humble apartment of aspiring screenwriter Walter Weinerman just before he is about to sell his screenplay to an all-powerful Hollywood film industry panel. We watch as Walter desperately practices pitching his film concept.
