- Ball and Chain Original
- Tales from a Darkened Room - Ball and Chain Alternative
The first in an occasional series of psychological dramas exploring the shad- ier side of human nature in a number of darkened rooms. The first is set during the last days of the rock star Janis Joplin who died of a drug over- dose in October 1970. Lonely, drunk and high on drugs in New York's Chelsea Hotel, she tries to seduce the black waiter who brings food to her room - but he has some criticisms to make of her attitudes to race, drugs and music.
