Event description


 ‘The Queen has no hour for love’

Bette Davis was one of the most iconic and gifted film actors of the 20th Century.

This onewoman show retraces the remarkable steps of a true movie legend. From fledgling stage actress to an unrivalled glittering movie career that also saw her battling the Studios in an unprecedented attempt to gain independence as an artist. Queen Bette follows Davis’ incredible life and makes reference to many of her most famous screen roles – in particular her fascination with Queen Elizabeth I (whom she played in two different movies).  Davis fought hard all her life, had four husbands, two Oscars and a reputation as the biggest bitch in Hollywood. Queen Bette tells the whole story.

Acclaimed actress Jeanette Cronin (Dark Voyager, The Boys, Holding the Man) stars in the role she was born to play.
