Brilliant and beautiful, in 1942 Veronica Lake was the hottest discovery in Hollywood, dining with the President and piloting her own plane across the continent. In less than a decade she was stuck in a dramatic nose-dive – famously sued by her mother and bankrupted by the IRS. Now, trapped somewhere between Paramount and Purgatory, the fictional personality of Veronica Lake graces us with a highly theatrical account of her meteoric rise to fame and glamour and equally spectacular decline. Alex Ellis plays the faded star, who has been dead for 40 years but is still optimistic for a comeback as she wrestles with stardom, booze, the wrong men and her spectacular decline into obscurity.

Written by Phil Ormsby, starring Alex Ellis and directed by Simon Coleman. A Flaxworks Production.
