Gizmo Love

Note: This review is from 2006

Review by Steve Bennett


ATC presents the UK premiere of Gizmo Love by US writer John Kolvenbach ­ a sharp and hilariously insightful black comedy thriller that delves into the cut-throat world of Tinsel Town; Hollywood at its most ruthless. When young screenwriter Ralph (Mathew Horne) sells his life's work to a faceless producer he is visited by Manny, a world-weary hack, who must pump up the script but things get ugly with the arrival of two hit men hired to ensure the job is completed.
