Saint Frances of Hollywood

By Sally Clark

Her star rising as a Hollywood diva, Frances Farmer chooses to join the socialist Group Theatre in New York. This idealistic, raucous and non-conforming movie star, pursued by the government for her alleged communist connections, was finally incarcerated with the help of her mother at Steilacoom, a Seattle psychiatric hospital, where she was lobotomized and released as “cured” in 1949. Saint Frances of Hollywood has taken the biographical details of Frances Farmer’s life and transformed them into a mesmerizing and quintessential classical tragedy.

Cast of 4 women and 4 men.

QUOTES OF NOTE

It is this mix of fact and fantasy that Clark has captured so brilliantly and used to striking advantage…the effect is brutally chilling.
Variety

A searing tragedy…
