Show details

Synopsis


Written and directed by Jackie Skarvellis, this is a moving portrait of the enigmatic star of East of Eden, Rebel Without A Cause and Giant.


What could you say about Jimmy Dean that hasn’t already been said?


One of the briefest Hollywood careers that ended spectacularly, whose star has continued to shine over 60 years since his death, whose image became iconic and the poster boy for each consecutive generation of teenagers.


Starring with such greats as Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, Natalie Wood, Sal Mineo, Julie Harris and Dennis Hopper he was also associated with other stars of the era, such as Dizzy Gillespie, Eartha Kitt, Ronald Reagan and Martin Landau.


In this one-man play, Dean is like a lost child in limbo, robbed of life after the fatal car crash in 1955.
