AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A three-part mini-episodic tragicomedy exploring the shocking disappearances of an actress as the performance of character collides with the performance of personal fears.

'Set in the magical world of theatre, the actress, fading, and hung-over suffers the post-show blues of a one-star show. Out–of- control and now, out- of- work, the actress spirals into a life-changing decision, catapulting onto a path of self-destruction. In a desperate attempt to secure a role uniquely her own, the actress hires a new agent who promises her success. The agent manipulates the actress into surrendering her willpower for a fantasy world in which she is now trapped. As her make-believe world collapses, the actress faces her greatest illusion.'
