Brooklyn's Piper Theatre Company announce return to Edinburgh Fringe Festival with "The Bloody Ballad Of Bette Davis", a new musical.

The cast stars Annie Montgomery as Bette Davis, Aaron Novak as Oliver Reed, Laura Dillman as B.D. Hyman, Connor Delves as Karen Black, and Eva Sheehy-Moss as Don. The Bloody Ballad Of Bette Davis is written and Directed by Piper's Artistic Director, John P. McEneny, with original music composed by Rob Parker.

Step onto the set of the 1975 film "Burnt Offering," where the legendary Bette Davis grapples with age discrimination and clashes with the unruly spirit of "New Hollywood," embodied by Karen Black. As tensions rise, Davis contemplates tapping into mysterious dark powers to reclaim control and exact her revenge. Experience a whirlwind of physical theatre through the Merv Griffin set, the tumultuous world of Dan Curtis's cult film, and into the alcoholic stomach of Oliver Reed.

Piper hopes to create a fast-moving tale of Hollywood witchcraft (What if Bette Davis was a witch?) and a poignant exploration of ageism and resilience in the arts.

Since 2000, under the artistic direction of John P. McEneny, Piper has produced more than 40 plays including Mother Sauvage (Tour Malta '23), Lincoln Dress (Tour Bucharest '22) Splitfoot (Edinburgh '15), We ShouId have Seen the Lights Already (Matei Visniec North American Premiere, Bucharest Tour '17), Island of Doctor Moreau (Edinburgh '13) Winner of Six Star Broadway Baby's Bobbie Award).
