WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ace is a brisk comedy written and performed by Emmy Award-winning Letterman writer Ted Greenberg.
DECEMBER 18, 1987, THE NINE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF TED GREENBERG'S OVERDUE COLLEGE PAPER.
Ted drives a NYC cab with one screaming deadline in front of him: He must turn in the paper by midnight, or his long-cherished degree-pending status at Harvard will be snatched away. Forever.
It will take a wild ride through the Big Apple and his past, and ultimately confronting his financial-titan dad, before he's able to come to grips with an eight- to 10-pager on Edmund Spenser's 500-year-old unfinished epic poem, The Faerie Queene.
