Karla Hillam – Sex, Lies & Betrayal


After a highly successful debut in Brisbane and sold-out shows in Adelaide, award-winning theatre company JTM
Productions is thrilled to bring their critically acclaimed production of Sex, Lies & Betrayal – Memoirs of a Hollywood
Star to Melbourne in a Victorian premiere.

Set to a lavish vintage score, the glossy world of Hollywood and the scandals behind the scenes come to life in riveting
detail in this raunchy true tell-all story of a 1940’s Hollywood leading lady who is only known by her pseudonym “Miss

Starring popular theatre performer Karla Hillam, the show features reimagined classics by Cole Porter, Christina Aguilera, Frank Sinatra, Edith Piaf, Amy Winehouse, Billie Eilish, Andrew Lloyd Webber and more.

‘Hollywood in the 1940’s was certainly glamourous. Secrets were rife, gossip was a way of life and movie moguls ruled.’
said Producer, Writer and Director Margaret Fisk AM. ‘It’s been exciting to bring Miss Nightingale’s memoirs to the
stage. She certainly lived a fascinating life, dirty little scandals and all. Reading her memoirs made me blush as they are
quite steamy but her story is really a tale of love and loss, temptation and loneliness, and her journey and sometimes
questionable choices, is something which I think many people can relate to.’

The exquisite Tusk High Bar in Windsor will be transformed into Miss Nightingale’s boudoir and Patrons are encouraged to dress in their finest as they enjoy an immersive experience of all things Hollywood, from decadent cocktails named after famous movie stars to a Hollywood inspired menu.

So who is this mysterious Miss Nightingale? She’s an adulteress, a seductress and a femme fatale who tells all; tales of passion, pain and betrayal and in true form, Miss Nightingale knows where all the skeletons are buried and isn’t afraid to spill the beans.
