In her mansion on Sunset Boulevard, faded silent-screen goddess, Norma Desmond, lives in a fantasy world. Impoverished screenwriter, Joe Gillis, on the run from debt collectors stumbles into her reclusive domain. Persuaded to work on Norma’s “masterpiece,” a film script that she believes will put her back in front of the cameras, he is seduced by her and her luxurious lifestyle. Joe becomes entrapped in a claustrophobic existence until his love for another woman leads him to try and break free with dramatic consequences.

The Victoria Hall was built in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Golden Jubilee. It was revamped in the mid-nineties and has since then been at the heart of the Cultural Quarter, alongside its sister venue The Regent Theatre. It has established itself as one of the most popular venues on the touring circuit playing host to the likes of Paul Weller, Morrissey and Jimmy Carr.
