Hollywood star on stage….

The tempestuous lives of female film stars have been the subject of many books, films, and documentaries. To therefore create a play about a Hollywood diva that is fresh and interesting is a challenge - yet Phil Ormsby has done just that with his play Drowning in Veronica Lake.

In 1942 Veronica Lake was the hottest discovery in Hollywood. This show captures the rise and fall of one of Hollywood's most notable pre-war siren's and how - with her signature look, a wisp of blonde hair over her right eye, and a string of men (most notably Alan Ladd) - she quickly rose to fame then just as quickly faded.

Her battles with the system, booze, wrong men, all contributed to a spectacular decline into obscurity. This is not however a chronological tale of events; it's more a string of highlights of the crucial moments of Lakes life and the emotion and trauma underpinning these monuments.
