Sit back and let one of Hollywood’s favorite “bad girls” entertain you with her titillating stories, quips, insults, and a few of her secrets.  

WARNING: This play contains strong language and explicit sexual references.  

This three-person drama is based on a real event that took place in the summer of 1965, when an inebriated Tallulah Bankhead required a full day to redub - or loop - one line of dialogue for her last movie, Die! Die! My Darling! The recording session ends up lasting 8 hours due to her drunken behavior, physical and mental meanderings, and constant need for dialogue, distraction, reassurance, and her own brand of talk therapy with the tech crew. Secrets are revealed, confessions are made, and both Tallulah and the sound engineer end up “looping back” to their own traumas to understand their lives.
