Product Overview

Drama / Characters: 6m, 2f Biographer Bill Lauder has penned a ruthless tell-all about Karla Daven, a long dead legendary 1950s starlet. As a result, he is summoned in the middle of the night to the dilapidated mansion of Karlas celebrity husband, Harold Bachman, a reclusive director who makes the outlandish claim that Karlas ghost has threatened to kill him this very night unless Bill calls off the publication of his tawdry book of lies. What follows is an intense evening where memory wrestles with myth in order to find the truth. As Harold gets deeper into exposing Bills lies about Karla, he is forced to confront the lies hes told himself - lies about himself as a filmmaker, a husband, and as a man. Harold must not only save himself from Karlas ghost, but from the ghosts of an unrealized life. * WINNER * 1994 Drama-Logue Critics Award Outstanding Achievement in Writing Steven Peros intriguing play is a well wrought tale of love and loss, set against the sweeping background of the golden era of Hollywood ... while the characters are fictional, they take on a life of their own and end up eerily reminiscent and real ... Karlaboy could rightly take its place among the more innovative and involving productions currently on the Los Angeles theatre scene. - Elias Stimac, Drama-Logue A wonderful experience ... what rings through this totally fascinating play is the brilliant dialogue. Steven Peros has an ear for dialogue of this type - highly intelligent, witty and on the mark. Youll see many a show before you come across talk this stimulating. - Maurice Keller, The Tolucan *Author: Peros, Steven *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 69 *Publication Date: 2009/09/28 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.00 x 8.00 x 0.15 inches
