Soap operas. The predecessor to reality television. Who of us didn't enjoy this guilty pleasure? Who of us despised a character so much, we privately fantasized about how they should die?
Enter disgraced, ex soap star, the still beautiful, Carrie Sheridan. Watch as she entertains with her dark humour and dramatically delivered anecdotes. She morphs into different people in her career to recreate conversations, and slowly the lines between reality and fiction become blurred ending in a somewhat surprising turn.
This one woman show is frequently “inappropriate” and leaves no stereotype untouched. “Hope and Caritas" is a commentary on the power of television to perpetuate, persuade, and popularize even the most ridiculous and dangerous ideologies and entities.
