“The Wizard of Ahhs"

A literary relay race. Watch as a story zanily evolves when writers each pen short sections of a tale in their own unique styles, ending in mid-sentence to hand off to another and continue until the adventure is completed. “The Wonderful Wizard of Ahhs,” a modern-day retelling of Frank Baum’s classic updated to reflect today’s bizarre reality of swabs up the nose (ahh!) mixed with political mayhem. Follow the orange brick road of 2020.
