TWELVE TULIPS FOR TINSELTOWNE – A PLAY ABOUT HOLLYWOOD

A short one act satirical comedy play about Hollywood and a young aspiring starlet who is anxious to make it in show business as a dramatic actress, but who is always given sex-kitten roles because of her glamorous appearance. Tulip Tinseltowne, feeling she is right on the verge of success, arrives back to her Hollywood apartment from an unsuccessful audition for a movie when a 7.1 earthquake occurs.

She thinks it’s Armageddon because Hollywood always seemed to her to be a den of sin. Her agent continually sends her to auditions for loose women roles where casting directors and producers harass the female talent. Her boyfriend has adapted to the ways of Hollywood quite well but expects her to tow the line and be faithful to him only. TULIP wants none of that except to succeed in achieving her artistic goals. Undaunted by these set-backs she vows to make it in Hollywood by hook or by crook, returning to the crumbled wasteland of Tinsel Town streets and boulevards to solicit her tantalizing talents.
