GARBO! is a passionate retelling of idols, idiots and the unforgettable. Think Sunset Boulevard meets Pobl Y Cwm. A Welsh Hollywood Babylon

An absurd character comedy featuring the life story of the most famous woman in the world, the man who has the house we all want and GARBO! Inspired (very loosely) by Vitto Russo’s seminal book, The Celluloid Closet.

This work in progress show follows on from Ryan Lane’s hugely successful Ryan Lane Will Be There Now In A Minute **** (The Skinny) Assembly Roxy, Soho Theatre, Chapter Cardiff. A fast paced, whip smart satire!
