Bette and Joan (2016)

May 25th to 28th 2016

Written by Anthony Burge

Directed by Doreen Belton

Bette & Joan depicts the two famous Hollywood stars, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, in adjacent dressing rooms, between takes on the set of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane. While Joan manages her anxiety by lacing her Pepsi with vodka and signing photographs for her beloved fans, Bette chain smokes and muses on her lovelife, and her ability to pick a decent script, never a decent man.
Behind the bitching and the practical jokes we see each woman's insecurities and regrets, and their rivalry is revealed to be underpinned by grudging respect as they attempt to identify their new roles in life as well as in their careers.
