It’s half past four in the morning of October 31st 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 career, from the ‘Talkies’ to the present day. Her story is the entire history of the American Motion Picture industry. This compelling play is a unique and touching insight into both Hollywood in its heyday, and arguably the finest actress of her generation.
