Bette Davis on the Edge

Sat 2nd December 2017
The Broadbent Theatre, Lincoln, LN3 5AW

Christine St John’s one woman show imagines Davis anxiously waiting for the reviews of her comeback film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane one evening in 1962. Alone in her hotel room having been too afraid to attend the premiere, Bette takes the audience on a trip down memory lane, telling not just the story of her acting life, but of the brutalities of studio control for women of a certain age. Whether or not it had all been worth it will be revealed when she finally hears the knock on the door delivering the morning editions and those crucial reviews.
