A hilarious satire, "Selling It" is about Geoffrey Castle, a newscaster at a small-town television station, who begins dictating his memoirs to an angry young intern named Doris. As the day progresses, the memoir gets longer, the promos go bad, the news director gets angrier and angrier, and Geoffrey slowly loses it.

"Selling It" contains adult language and the use of cigarettes. "Selling It" is not only an original student work but is also designed entirely by students. The set designer is sophomore, Megan Bladow, the light designer is sophomore, John B. Hall and the costume designer is junior, Katy Benson.
