Bette and Joan
by Anton Burge
22-29 April 2017, 7.30pm
In adjoining dressing rooms on the film set of the 1962 black comedy Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? Bette Davies and Joan Crawford enact their bitter rivalries and, in doing so, lay bare the emotional scars of their lives with incredible honesty and humour. Venomous barbs are exchanged as the deadly shafts of delightful wit are delivered with relish, just where it will hurt most.

Marilyn Monroe, Joseph McCarthy, Joe Di Maggio and Albert Einstein meet in a hotel room... so begins a hilarious fictional night on which the four interact with catastrophic results.
