Phyllis Winters is an ingenue, a not-so-naive (she hopes) young actress at the start of her career.
She lives and works in an aura of temperament and discipline, wild egotism and sudden, breath-taking creativity -- the exciting, competitive, sexually-charged world of the theatre.
To the audience, she's an idealized version of young innocence ... to her leading man, a charming possibility for a two-week affair. But to herself, she's Phyllis Winters, actress -- with the looks, the talent and ambition to become a star.
Ingenue is the story of her adventures in the theatre -- the most exasperating, rewarding, unpredictable and wonderful of all the arts.
