From bringing him coffee to getting him laid, it's up to new assistant and aspiring screenwriter Guy to satisfy every whim of the incendiary Buddy Ackerman, powerful movie producer and the boss from hell.
Blinded by the promise of a fast track up the Hollywood ladder, Guy is about to find out that moviemaking is not for the faint-hearted.
If he's going to rise to the top, then he'll need to play by Buddy's rules. And Buddy plays dirty. Swimming with Sharks, adapted from the George Huang film by playwright Michael Lesslie, is an incisive look into the cut-throat world of Hollywood.
The play had its world premiere at the Vaudeville Theatre, London, on 5 October 2007.
