What if Matt Damon and Ben Affleck didn’t really write Good Will Hunting, but instead had the script drop fully-written into their laps from the sky? Suppose Matt and Ben were visited by and received advice from Gwynth Paltrow and J.D. Salinger? What if they were portrayed by women? Dragonfly Multicultural Arts Center of Metuchen will answer these questions when it presents the wacky comedy Matt & Ben, in which two actresses play the stars before they were…well, stars.

"Refreshing and absolutely delightful...A deliciously spiteful sendup." --The New York Times

"Goofy, funny, and improbably believable...Kaling and Withers have created one of the most appealing male-bonding stories since Damon and Pythias, or Oscar and Felix."-- The New Yorker
