The Norma Conquests 

Directed by Hugh Munro Neely

            Opening September 15 and playing                      for 3 weekends

This play by Rom Watson is a parody-sequel to
the classic movie Sunset Boulevard (1950). The play is set in 1967, seventeen years after the events of the movie. Norma Desmond, former actress, the greatest Diva of the silent screen, has been in prison for sixteen years for
murdering her lover, Joe, when he tried to leave her. Now, though her sentence is not finished, she has been given a chance to participate in a work-release program. She can leave prison each day, if she can keep a job. But this doesn’t turn out to be so easy! It seems she keeps tripping over her ego, and the varied and distinctive people she
meets in each job are likely to recognize this and hold her accountable. First, she is a contestant on the classic television game show, To Tell the Truth. Next, she is tapped to teach an acting class, as substitute for the regular teacher. Finally, she is offered a job as a maid in the home of an important public figure. Way too many things go wildly wrong, and humor ensues!
