1930s – the Golden Age of Hollywood.
The tragedy of a man obsessed…


Monroe Stahr, the “Boy Wonder” (loosely based on the celebrated Irving Thalberg), obsessed: with movies, with illusion, with the memory of his dead wife and with Shakespeare, wants to turn Romeo and Juliet into his crowning masterpiece – a tribute to his dead wife.
Pat Brady (based on Louis B Mayer) knows it will lose money so is just as determined to kill the project.

When an earthquake nearly destroys the studio, an enigmatic and mysterious Englishwoman steps out of the wreckage.

Is she the one to save Stahr?  Or will his latest obsession finally destroy him?

With music from the period and a mixture of period and original film footage, this tale evokes the nostalgia of a lost age and lost dreams.

Direct from a limited run at the Arts Theatre in the West End.

Ages 15+

“Unconvincing Fitzgerald adaptation lacking in Hollywood allure. ”
