Divas Outdoors at Hillwood presents Joan Crawford’s “Queen Bee”

June 7, 2013 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm


Hillwood and One In Ten proudly welcome the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) communities to experience classic films under the stars like nowhere else in DC as part Capital Pride. Revel in a summer evening in the gardens and tour the mansion in its twilight splendor.

When the sun goes down, the stingers come out, as Joan Crawford stars in the 1955 classic melodrama, Queen Bee. Described at the time by The New York Times as “the height of mellifluous meanness and frank insincerity,” Crawford plays the unhappy wife of a wealthy mill tycoon, who takes pleasure in manipulating everyone around her. The histrionics of this campy classic are sure to inspire laughter and fun across the lawn.
