Based on the true story of a mysterious Hollywood death The Cat’s Meow offers a fascinating cross section of characters who intersect for one notorious weekend on board William Randolph Hearst’s yacht in 1924.

Weekend guests include: Charlie Chaplin, who has been carrying on with movie star Marion Davies, a secret known to Davies’ paramour, the married – and much older — Hearst; and movie mogul Thomas Ince.

The Footlight Club production is directed by Jamie Alley and produced by Paula Cogliano and Coco Coviello.

The Footlight Club, America’s oldest community theater, is at 7A Eliot St., Jamaica Plain, MA.
