Notes: Play Synopsis:
When Lale, a Midwestern girl, abandons the cornfields for the bright lights and big breasts of Hollywood, she has no idea of the struggles she will endure. From her low-paying job at the park district to her small-scale apartment, life in Hollywood is less fabulous than she imagined. When she meets Craig, the head of a production company, he introduces her to life in the fast lane. She is handed a job at his company and begins her climb up the corporate ladder; but nothing comes without a price. Craig promises Lale fortune and fame in return for her love (amongst other things). When Lale meets Scott, she begins to question her morals. As she climbs the Hollywood hierarchy and her pocket fattens, her life spins out of control and Lale finds she has lost touch with the Midwestern girl with a dream to create. What she finds is that she has created a monster; and life couldn't be more fabulous...
