Just when politics has lost its sense of humour, in rides Billie Dawn on a breath of fresh air. Her smarts are buried under layers of satin and showgirl sass but are highly combustible. When her powerful and shady boyfriend, Harry Brock, sets out to buy a senator, he decides Billie needs a bit more class and he hires journalist, Paul Verrall, to make her appear more intelligent. But a little education can go a long way, and Billie may be smarter than the men in her life give her credit for.
Born Yesterday is a sparkling 1946 romantic and political comedy as relevant today as it was 70 years ago! Personal and political oppression are exposed and outwitted in the intellectual rebirth of the iconic “dumb blonde”, who stands up to corruption & intimidation. Suitable for ages 13 and older.
