The Village Rep is thrilled to announce the EAST COAST PREMIERE production of HOLLYWOOD by the Tony Award-winning playwright Joe DiPietro.

In 1922, famed director William Desmond Taylor is found murdered in his home. The celebrity suspects mount as the headlines explode with lurid reports of love triangles, hush money and deception. Enter Will Hays, Hollywood’s newly appointed moral watchdog, determined to silence the scandal and purify this increasingly corrupt city. Based on the true story of Taylor’s unsolved murder, Hollywood is a noir thriller set in the Golden Age of movies. Even more intriguing, the victim is a relative of Village Rep producing director Keely Enright.
