Bette Davis on the Edge was presented by Christine St John at the Vera Fletcher Hall during its premiere UK run in 2014, since when it has toured the States including New York and we are delighted to welcome her back
It’s half past four in the morning of 31st October 1962 and motion picture legend Bette Davis is waiting anxiously for the reviews of ‘Whatever Happened to Baby Jane’ . If the picture is a success it will hail the desperately needed comeback for the star’s fading career. If not it will provide a sad and embarrassing epitaph. As she waits she reflects on her entire career, from the ‘Talkies’ to the present day. Her story is the entire history of the American motion picture industry.
“Christine St John’s portrayal is much more than an impersonation – she gives a fascinating insight into the heart and soul of the woman. She is superb” Claire Skinner, Actress (Bridget Jones Diary)
