Description

A struggling movie actress and an aspiring horror writer are on the very brink of success – each just a compromise away. Jessica has been asked to upgrade her sex appeal. Olivia’s book must adopt a male pseudonym. Inspired by real events, this is a comedy (with the occasional song) about the insanity of male-dominated creative industries and the one conundrum every artist will undoubtedly face: the choice to forfeit artistic integrity in the name of success, or to stay true to their art but miss out on the opportunity of a lifetime.
