Defending in Arbuckle’s Rape

fatty-500x354In this staged reading, I played not one but two different defense attorneys. Clearly, I am being typecast. Also, I clearly should have pursued law.

Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle was one of the most popular silent stars of the 1910s, and soon became one of the highest paid actors in Hollywood. Then, at his peak, Arbuckle was accused of the rape and subsequent death of actress Virginia Rappe. This enormous scandal and Arbuckle’s three widely publicized trials are explored in Arbuckle’s Rape.
