Joan of Hollywood


"Joan of Hollywood is a one-act comedic satire on the film business. It follows a starlet to Hollywood in a perverse tale of media morality. A not-so-innocent country girl wins a beauty prize and goes to El Lay, where she becomes entwined in "The Martyrdom of the Virgin Queen". This is a film where.a king murders his barren queen to take up a young, nubile wife for the sake of his kingdom. In the play, the director and stars want to make life imitate art and the plot slips back and forth between real and reel life."
