"Matt and Ben" is the funny, scathing, delightfully venomous story of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (played by two women!) who are struggling to write a screenplay in their rundown apartment in Boston in 1996. Much to their surprise and delight, the script for "Good Will Hunting" falls from the sky and into their laps. Matt and Ben was a hit at the New York International Fringe Festival and off-Broadway.
