Hollywood Arms, by Carol Burnett and Carrie Hamilton
, is based on Burnett's memoir One More Time. Set in California in 1941 and 1951, it is the story of three generations of women living on welfare in a one-room apartment, one block north of Hollywood Boulevard.
Characters include a tough, funny, yet tender pill-popping Christian Scientist grandmother; a beautiful wide-eyed and distant mother who is struggling to be a writer, only to drown her ambitions in a bottle; a loving but absent and alcoholic father; and a young girl whose only escape is up on the roof of their rundown apartment house where she creates her own magical world at the foot of the Hollywood Hills. Finally, it's a story about shattered hopes and realized dreams.
Hollywood Arms is directed by Susan Meade. This show contains adult situations and language.Questions or further information call (989) 893-5555 M-W 9am-3pmor visit our website at http://www.baycityplayers.com
