Brilliance chronicles the meteoric rise, and tragic fall of Frances Farmer, a Hollywood movie star in the 1930s and 40s. The play takes us from the beginning of Frances' career, through her unprecedented success as, what Paramount described as, "the next Greta Garbo," to her involuntary commitment to an insane asylum by her own mother -- and the eventual restoration of her own freedom and competency in 1953. The play explores the volatile mother-daughter relationship and the nature of fame in the "Silver Screen" era of old-style movie stardom...exploring what happens when a young girl's love and adoration for her mother, and her own worship of the art of acting, are betrayed beyond measure, and where the fine-line between mental health and insanity is drawn.
