BDAFS recently premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, garnering a 5 Star Review from EdinburghGuide before moving to the St. James Theater in London for a successful limited run. The response from theater-goers and media outlets has been phenomenal:

*****5 Stars EdinburghGuide

"This punchy performance paints an honest and insightful picture of the hard work behind the casual glamour of the era's publicity shots" The Scotsman

"Sherr - who bears a striking resemblance to Davis captures the tenacity of a woman who had to fight for her career and two Oscars."-The Scotsman

BETTE DAVIS AIN'T FOR SISSIES is a powerful one-woman show starring Jessica Sherr and directed by Antony Raymond. Taking place on the night of the 1939 Academy Awards, Davis finds out that she will lose the Oscar to Vivien Leigh, so she decides to leave the ceremony. What follows is an internal dialogue of Davis' memories, filled with historically accurate details and piercing insight into the struggle of the actress who wouldn't fit into the mold of the stereotypical Hollywood ingenue. An official selection of the New York Fringe Festival, this is a spirited portrayal of a box-office icon and powerful woman. See what happens when someone who always wants to win...loses.
