THE SHOW

From the original writers of the TV comedy ‘Friends’ come this hilarious and fast-paced spoof, set during the 1930s, telling the story of two brothers, Benny and Phil, who go to the Arizona desert to be extras in the huge Biblical epic EXEUNT OMNES (Latin for ‘Everybody Out!’). Things move very quickly in this riotous comedy and before you know it, Phil is directing the movie, and Benny is starring in it. To complicate matters further, the both fall in love with Louise, the Assistant Director in charge of extras. Along the way there are gladiator battles, the Ten Plagues, and a cast of thousands … portrayed by only four other actors! The chaos continues as Phil keeps filming, the crew attempts to meet his demands, Benny and Louise try to hide their love, and the “sea of extras” revolt!
