    Fame, What's Her Name?

    An evening of one-acts exploring class, power and of courseFAME. Among the selected plays included are: The Tiger, by Saki. Set in the 1930s, Mrs. Packletide, a socialite seeks to upstage her closest friend Loona Bimberton, to become the most famous woman in London by shooting a tiger in India and bringing back its skin for display. Her trusted traveling companion, Louisa Mebbin, however, aims to reveal the truth behind the big hunt unless Mrs. Packletide agrees to some costly compensation. The Package Deal by Fredrick Stroppel, winner of the 1994 Drama-Logue Award. Set in Los Angeles in the early 90s, the Package Deal takes a plot-twisting look into the lives of Starla, a frustrated actress, and her eccentric agent, Cody, while they lunch in a hot Hollywood restaurant to discuss business. Cody convinces Starla not to leave her for another agent — only to drop her. Starla, in retaliation, drops a bombshell that all of Hollywood will talk about.
