Director: James Alexandrou
Running Time: 86′
A tale of artistic commitment bound up with personal tragedy, The Show sees a young actress dealing with enormous loss as she prepares for her debut stage performance. Working relentlessly, the cast of a new production of Oscar Wilde’s Salomé are already exploring some intense personal territory, reaching within themselves to achieve enhanced levels of authenticity. Chloe’s transition from soap stardom to the stage is already proving challenging opposite her committed and uncompromising co-star. But when an awful bereavement befalls her, she has to worry about much more than remembering her lines. Actor-turned director James Alexandrou’s feature film debut is a tightly-wrought, emotionally convincing portrait of life lived through art.
