"The Wisdom of Eve", a gripping and entertaining play about the machinations of life in a famous star’s theatre world.
Fish Hoek Dramatic Society presents The Wisdom of Eve
by Mary Orr and Reginald Denham, at the Masque Theatre
Directed by Celia Musikanth
The well-loved movie classic All about Eve and the hit musical Applause Applause were both adapted from the page-turning play The Wisdom of Eve.
This play is about the machinations of what goes on both onstage and backstage in the theatre world.
Margo Crane (played by Julie Summers) is a glamorous stage star and into her life steps Eve Harrington an ardent “fan”. What follows is an intriguing story which could happen at any given time in the desperate “success at all costs ambition” of stage and screen actors.
Bette Davis played the Oscar-winning role in the movie and the movie itself garnered a record-breaking number of Oscars in its day.
In 1998 Celia Musikanth directed The Wisdom of Eve in a little church hall to great acclaim – she feels it deserves to be staged in a real theatre. Be prepared to be totally engrossed by this intriguing play with a stellar cast.
