Synopsis

Saint Frances of Hollywood

Saint Frances of Hollywood $17.99

Sally Clark

Published by Talon Books

3 Male 3 Female

Her star rising as a Hollywood diva, Frances Farmer chooses to join the socialist Group Theatre in New York

This idealistic, raucous and non-conforming movie star, pursued by the Government for her alleged communist connections, was finally incarcerated with the help of her mother at Steilacoom, a Seattle psychiatric hospital, where she was lobotomized and released as "cured" in 1949

Sally Clark's play has taken the biographical details of Frances Farmer's life and transformed them into a mesmerizing and quintessential classical tragedy

"It is this mix of fact and fantasy that Clark has captured so brilliantly and used to striking advantage ... the effect is brutally chilling" ~ Variety
