WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
For anyone who's ever wished upon a star... This touching and uplifting new play by acclaimed writer Amanda Whittington takes you through the joy and heartache of hero worship. Adapted from the autobiographical memoir, My Judy Garland Life by Susie Boyt, it tells the story of growing up under the spell of Judy Garland. Featuring Garland's best-loved songs alongside key moments in Susie and Judy's lives, this is an original take on the relationship between a fan and a star. Enthralled as a child by the passion and pain of Garland's voice, Susie grows up dreaming of all things Judy. The troubled star becomes someone she can confide in, care for and be consoled by. Judy's heart-stopping blend of joy and anguish helps Susie with her own troubles and will ultimately bring her through the darkest days of her life.
