FEATURES / CONTAINS

Interior Set

This play about one woman, before and after she made it, takes place in the room of a washed up image (like Monroe or Harlow) in a sanitarium run by the Franciscans. Spiritually she imagines herself to be a nun while physically she is the whore the world saw. In the seconds before she dies, a suicide by strangulation on her wall cross, her life flashes by. Once she knows she is going to die her reaction is - to live.
