Production Description
The play is a dialogue in a madhouse between split halves of a Hollywood personality. The White Whore is the star as she appears to others. The Bit Player, a nun, is the star's image of herself. In the playwright's comic vision, the whore is angelic and virtuous, the nun cheap and brassy.

At the point of suicide, the two remember scenes from life and lead each other through, forgotten films on a runway shaped like a cross. Eyen's view is a fragmented but touching portrait of a tortured goddess.
