"Dark Voyager is simply a play that will speak to bold and liberated women everywhere, and of course, to the people who love them."Suzy Goes See
"John Misto taps into something pretty much universal, the passion, more to the point obsession that people have with everything to do with celebrity."Sydney Arts Guide
Dark Voyager Script
This is optional.
Hollywood, 1962. Bette Davis and Joan Crawford are at war. Between them they've terrorized movie studios for over three decades, married nine husbands, made two hundred films and guzzled enough booze to fill the Hoover Dam. Now their careers are on the skids and Bette and Joan are locked in a titanic struggle for top-billing on their latest movie. When America's most feared columnist, Hedda Hopper, invites them to supper, they call an uneasy truce. But the evening turns chaotic when an unexpected guest arrives -- Marilyn Monroe, dunk, drugged, dishevelled, the face of "new" Hollywood. Soon Marilyn is drawn into the Davis-Crawford war, and what begins as a game becomes a battle for survival. Will old age and treachery defeat youth and courage? Or is there more to Marilyn Monroe than anyone could have guessed?
