Tony Ramsay's play, set in ARGENTINA, stars Juliet Stevenson as Victoria Mendez, whose violent death in the Dirty War, comes to affect the romantic notions of a young ENGLISH teacher.
In the 1930s at the height of Tallulah Bankhead's fame as a theatre star, Evie Cronin became chief among her gallery girls, young women who religiously attended her every performance, shrieking and cheering the moment she walked on stage.
Evie, obsessed by the star's flamboyant persona, followed Tallulah's every movement - becoming what today we would call a stalker.
Tallulah, however, far from being intimidated by this intense, even intrusive adulation, positively welcomed it and invited the younger woman into her household as her secretary.
The play opens in 1951.
Tallulah is 49 years old and although her film career has begun to tail off, this has in no way slowed down her wild lifestyle.
The leading stars of Hollywood attend her infamous parties and Evie works away in the background, inured to decades of her mistress' outrageous behaviour.
But one day Evie has finally had enough and confronts Tallulah.
