Bette & Joan: The Final Curtain

Bette Davis famously said: “You should only say good of the dead. Joan Crawford is dead. Good”.

Now on her own deathbed, Davis finds herself forced to confront the ghost of her nemesis. But the fact that someone is dead doesn’t mean they’ve changed…

This new comedy-drama from the creators of Thatcher The Musical! takes a wry look at two Hollywood icons and their equally famous feud.


'Sharp, imaginative, intelligent... and extremely funny.'
BBC Front Row on Foursight Theatre

'The best time I had with Joan Crawford was when I pushed her down the stairs in Whatever Happened to Baby Jane.'
Bette Davis

'Take away those pop eyes, the cigarette, those funny clipped words, and what have you got?'
Joan Crawford
