The production is based on a series of prank letters Nancy, a pseudonym for Barry Marder, wrote to corporate executives and their responses. The letters were subsequently turned into a best-selling book series in 1997 and Seinfeld wrote the introduction.

Marder, who worked on Jerry's 1990s TV show Seinfeld, has written the play and Pierre Balloon, another pseudonym for an unnamed director, will helm. Marder will star in the show, alongside Beth Kennedy and Sam Kwasman.

The production will premiere in June (17) at the Geffen Playhouse's Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater in California.

A description of the show reads, "Ted L. Nancy is a customer in need of service. He writes to the city of Huntington Beach requesting a permit for operating his Electronic Nose Blowing MAChine, invites Czechoslovakian President Vaclav Havel to become Treasurer of Ted's Vacuum Club, asks Nordstrom about buying a mannequin that looks like his deceased neighbor to present to the grieving widow, and more. Time after time, well-meaning representatives offer earnest replies to his letters."
