MA – An Evening with Sean Penn

The Harvard Coop and the Hasty Pudding Theatricals are pleased to present: Film Icon, Loudmouth, and Author Sean Penn on Thursday, March 29th at 8:00 PM speaking about his new novel, BOB HONEY WHO JUST DO STUFF. Get tickets here…

Ironically named and brilliantly drawn, Bob Honey, the protagonist of Penn’s first novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, is bitter about his divorce, fed up with Tweets, and tired of being mined for Big Data. He has a day job selling septic tanks to Jehovah’s Witnesses but he hires out as a contract killer for a secret government program that gets rid of the elderly, the infirm, and others who draw down society’s limited resources. When a journalist starts asking questions, Honey isn’t sure if he should feel threatened or take it as an opportunity to come clean. With the constant threat of terrorism in the air and an ever more volatile political landscape, anything could happen. Penn, the Academy Award-winning actor, writer, producer, and director, has created an unforgettably outrageous hero for our outrageous time.

DETAILS: Ticket admits ONE (1) and includes ONE (1) Copy of Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff with a signed bookplate. Seating is general admission; first come, first served.

The Drop has been adapted to film and is the basis for the movie of the same title that is being released September 12th of this year by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Dennis Lehane wrote the screenplay for The Drop film which stars Tom Hardy and the late James Gandolfini. As expected Mr. Lehane will also introduce a unique screening of the The Drop film which opens in theaters nationwide the day prior.

The Drop – “Three days after Christmas, a lonely bartender looking for a reason to live rescues an abused puppy from a trash can and meets a damaged woman looking for something to believe in. As their relationship grows, they cross paths with the Chechen mafia; a man grown dangerous with age and thwarted hopes; two hapless stick-up artists; a very curious cop; and the original owner of the puppy, who wants his dog back. . . .”

In addition to having written several novels that were subsequently adapted to film, Dennis Lehane, has written multiple teleplays and serves as a creative consultant and writer for the HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. He formerly served as a staff writer for the award-winning HBO series The Wire.
