The Best of Cornish theatre

Bette and Joan showing Tuesday 1st May – Saturday 5th May

Renowned actresses Anita Dobson and Greta Scacchi step into the shoes of legendary rivals Bette Davis and Joan Crawford as their 30 year feud reaches boiling point.

In Anton Burge’s new comedy, two Hollywood stars whose careers have hit rock bottom, are thrown together for the filming of the now classic film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? The highs, the lows, the tantrums, are all exposed during this great night out at the theatre. The movie propelled them both back to stardom, but will they ever speak to each other again?

We are excited about this one, and can’t wait to queue, for what is bound to be a popular show.
