The story is of a troupe of young performers battling to keep their show and their theatre open in the face of intimidation by evil property developers.
The 1950s saw a lot of social change and ‘Stars in Your Eyes’ explores a number of contemporary issues including the impact of TV on theatre and cinema, gender identity and the long shadow of WW II cast throughout the film with parody of army life.
