A tale of obsession and possession. In 1937, Jake Broyles, a young professor, traces the lost letters and papers of Gerald Clarke—the celebrated writer who many years before had died in his thirties—to Hollywood: to the house of Clarke’s now ancient former lover and her young ward. In The Misses Bordereau, Jake Broyles moves into their house, hoping to find some way to pry from the women the Clarke treasure. What he discovers is a treasure that casts a spell tumbling him into a landscape just out of time—somewhere between the lost years of Gerald Clarke and present, glittering, Los Angeles; somewhere between the fictions of Adolph Zukor and a reality as strange as fiction.

Admission is free, however seating is limited and will be first come, first seated. The doors will open 20 minutes before curtain.
