APR 5 – APR 27
Hollywood, 1962. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford are at war. Between them they’ve terrorised movie studios for over three decades, married nine husbands, made two hundred films and guzzled enough booze to fill the Hoover Dam.
Now their careers are on the skids and Bette and Joan are locked in a titanic struggle for top-billing on their latest movie. When America’s most feared columnist, Hedda Hopper, invites them to supper, they call an uneasy truce. But the evening turns chaotic when an unexpected guest arrives – Marilyn Monroe, drunk, drugged, disheveled, the face of “new” Hollywood. Soon Marilyn is drawn into the Davis-Crawford war, and what begins as a game becomes a battle for survival. Will old age and treachery defeat youth and courage? Or is there more to Marilyn Monroe than anyone could have guessed?
You are cordially invited to join these legendary ladies for the ultimate showbiz meal. It has a menu with something to appeal to everyone: singing, dancing, party-games… and just a little bit of murder.
Please note there is no performance on April 19
