A study of authenticity, performance, and circumstance through the eyes of a so-called performer. A conflicted heroine who explores the nature and meaning of performance and the will to create. Inspired by the writings of Tennessee Williams, Curtain Call examines the performer's public and private world, probing the boundaries of self-doubt, sensitivity, and sanity, and chronicling her search for richness and joy.
