Welcome to the Golden era of Hollywood – the playground of the rich and famous, where fortunes are made, virginity is lost and sexual encounters are many.
In a world premiere, award-winning theatre company JTM Productions is proud to present Sex, Lies & Betrayal – Memoirs of a Hollywood Star as part of Anywhere Festival.
The one-woman cabaret starring Karla Hillam (Offspring, Wentworth, Practically Perfect, The Divine Miss Bette) is a raunchy tell-all tale based on the true stories of the life and loves of a Hollywood leading lady who in the show goes by the pseudonym of Miss Nightingale.
“Hollywood back then was certainly glamourous. Secrets were rife, gossip was a way of life and movie moguls ruled,” said Executive Producer and Director Margaret Fisk AM. “It’s exciting to finally bring Miss Nightingale’s memoirs to the stage, although I’m not sure that this show is something you would take your Grandma to, as some of the scenes are quite erotic.”
So who is this mysterious Miss Nightingale? She’s an adultress, a seductress and a femme fatale who tells all; tales of passion, pain and betrayal, she knows where all the skeletons are buried. Set in the film-noir style of the 1940’s and featuring a score of reimagined classics by Christina Aguilera, Frank Sinatra, Edith Piaf and more, this is no love letter to Hollywood.
