The one-year anniversary of The Booksmith's ingenuous competitive erotic fanfiction series, Shipwreck, tackles Gone With the Wind; six previous winners of the series have reappropriated characters from the epic romance classic of all epic romance classics, to make them do things they may have never dreamed of doing. All work is read by Shakespearean Thespian in Residence Steven Westdahl, and audience members vote on their favorite; the winners choose their character for the following show and return to defend their title. This is not for the squeamish; "It used to be, we had to sit in dark, sticky booths to get these kinds of thrills," says past contestant Nate Waggoner. Participating writers include five-time victor Alan Leggit, Carolyn Ho (The Great Gatsby), Mac Barnett (The Wizard of Oz), Ivan Hernandez (The Hunger Games), Spencer Bainbridge (The Shining), and Maggie Tokuda-Hall (The Catcher in the Rye). Admission includes drinks and aching sides.
