INSPIRATIONS: The piece was inspired by a 2016 visit to Clarksville, TN and The Roxy Theatre -- where I returned to the live stage after 10 years away!
LOGLINE: In light of her sagging career, and following the death of her husband, Hollywood actress Alexandra Abbott returns to her theatre roots in a small Tennessee town to retake the stage -- where 20 years earlier she survived a devastating tornado. With lingering survivor's guilt, she must face her fears, her past and the supernatural mystery of The Costume People.
COSTUME PEOPLE RHYME:
"Costume People, Costume People...
Fabric, oh-so bright.
Take a look beyond the curtain...
To a lovely opening night."
