Bette and Joan

Poster8pm, September 13-17

Once grande dames of Hollywood, by 1962, arch-rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford were in danger of becoming has-beens. Then an opportunity came along- to appear together in a new movie called What Ever Happened To Baby Jane.

Anton Burge’s riveting two hander is a wickedly funny and shamelessly bitchy study of two of Hollywood’s greatest stars facing their insecurities, musing on their past and absolutely loathing each other. A sharp intelligent script full of barbed insults, insincere smiles and sparkling dialogue.

 
Director: Jess Osorio

Cast:
Bette Davis – Jenny McLaughlin
Joan Crawford – Lily Ann Green

Running time:
135 minutes including a 15 minute interval.
