When you’re young, and passionate about your first theatre job, you do everything your director tells you to. Don’t you?
Tor Douglas can be charismatic, rude, angry or captivating. And Marigold is lucky to be starting her career in the Tower Theatre Company – so she’d better do as he says. But she’s used to speaking her mind, sometimes too impulsively, and this soon gets her into trouble with her director and the other actors, who are far more wily, devious and dangerous than she could imagine.
Acting is exactly like falling in love; you are nervous, ecstatic, heartbroken, transformed and always avid for more, and you can’t keep away from the love object. But if Marigold’s not more careful, it is not just her job that she’ll lose.
