The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign

There is perhaps no landmark in the world more iconic than the Hollywood sign. A fact which makes it such a compelling setting for the opening moments of the latest work by Joanne Hartstone.

Hartstone’s latest work, The Girl Who Jumped Off The Hollywood Sign, takes the audience through a three-decade-long journey through the Golden Age of Hollywood. The story follows an aspiring actress who wanted nothing more than to be a star. However, as she walks the audience through her nightmarish encounters we ultimately learn not everything in tinsel town is happy and sparkling as these events ultimately seal her fate.

Although written prior to the incredible #MeToo movement the show tackles the underlying systemic abuse of power that has permeated throughout the performing arts industry for decades.

Sep 10-14. Old 505 Theatre, 5 Eliza St, Newtown. $29-$35+b.f. Tickets & Info: www.old505theatre.com
