Clutching the sides of the Hollywood sign, aspiring actress Evie Edwards is about to tell us why she is up there. Looking out over the lights of Los Angeles, and the studio system that produced her nightmare, she takes the audience on a nostalgic journey through the golden age of Hollywood, told from a fresh and dark perspective.
Written and performed by Joanne Hartstone, the show’s affecting Technicolor-styled performance makes a poignant statement about the human cost of America’s dream factory.
Winner of the inaugural Made in Adelaide award.
