Intrigue, Treachery, Backstabbing and an evil genius plotting to conquer the world, the world of The Sun Also Sets: a world not of our reality...of extremes so emotional, so dastardly that it makes one cringe even to think of it…the world of Soap Opera.
A world where premature children gestate for 15 or more months, toddlers age years overnight and complete characters (and sometimes personalities) are switched and no one ever notices. Is this some evil alien plan? Is this an anomaly in the space time continuum? NO, it is the evil Daytime Drama, a force so devious, so foul that it rivals demonic possession in its hold on the human mind, nay, the soul of its minions.
Soapdish stars Sally Field and Kevin Kline leading an all star cast in a deliciously hilarious look at what happens when real life intrudes on the set of a flagging soap The Sun Also Sets. READ MORE
