Tom Stoelker in Etta Jenks, Wilma Theater

I created this set for the Wilma Theater. The play tells the story of an actress who arrives in Hollywood with dreams of becoming a star, but ends up in porn.  The heroine eventually becomes an adult film producer.  It was one of my most difficult prop hunts. Among the director's requests: half of a red mustang convertible, an M-16 machine gun, and at least a dozen 1970s vintage porn posters (which I located in Pennsylvania's Lancaster County, of all places).
