The Cannes Film Festival! Most glamorous of all cinema occasions. In a luxury Riviera hotel, the body of a beautiful film star, Grace Gervaise lies prostrate. A hooded jewel thief breaks in and discovers her. A man bursts in and assumes the thief is the murderer. Another man enters and assumes another story. The film star wakes from her blackout and assumes a third story. The hotel manager arrives and attempts to make sense of all the stories. A huge film premiere is looming, a diamond necklace has gone missing, scandalous affairs are about to hit the headlines, everyone appears to be trying to murder someone, and everyone is blaming everyone else. Bodies and threats and alibis abound, and the plot thickens so fast it threatens to explode. Never has the Riviera seen such a dastardly sequence of events! Never has Hollywood created such a catalogue of criminal conspiracies! Has real life ever exceeded the concoctions of fiction to such a degree?

GRACE GERVAISE – film star, 50s

Roo Theatre Company by arrangement with Cameron Mackintosh Limited presents The Witches of Eastwick. The Witches of Eastwick tells the tale of the people of the little town of Eastwick. It is a town where everyone knows everything about everyone else, and it is presided over by the indomitable Felicia Gabriel. Bored and fed up with their small town lives, three women--Alexandra (Alex), Sukie, and Jane--share a desire for “all manner of man in one man” to provide excitement and variety. That man arrives, literally in a flash, in the devil-like form of Darryl Van Horne. Darryl seduces the women and teaches them powers, which they never knew they had. Scandalized by the carefree foursome, Felicia and the women of the town vow to clean up the “Dirty Laundry” that is disrupting their peaceful setup. As Darryl’s powers over Alex, Jane, and Sukie become more powerful, the three women start to consider that their wild, lustful relationship with Darryl is more sinister and dangerous than they realized. After Felicia and her husband, Clive, die as a result of the witches’ curse, the women vow to have nothing more to do with Darryl. When Darryl tries to take over the rest of the town and marry Felicia and Clive’s orphaned daughter Jennifer, they realize that they must use their newly discovered powers to get rid of him once and for all.
