ME & JEZEBEL
By Elizabeth Fuller
Directed by Barry Crocker

Starring Katy Manning

"Me & Jezebel" is a hilarious play based on the real experience of author Elizabeth Fuller, who in the summer of 1985, by pure chance, had the legendary screen actress Bette Davis come to stay at her 'somewhat dilapidated' New England cottage. What was supposed to be an overnight stay turned into an escapade which lasted 32 days, in which time Davis turned Fuller's home and life upside down.

In a 'tour de voice' performance, Katy Manning plays all the parts! The affected, name dropping, Joan Crawford-hating superstar Bette Davis; the reluctant hostess, naive, star-struck Elizabeth; her frustrated husband John; the thumb-sucking impressionable four-year-old son Christopher; the Irish grandma Ol'Ma; the Dolly Parton-like singing evangelist Grace - and even the family dog!

WARNING: Miss Davis does use occasional coarse language!

A zinging comedy ... a hoot ... as funny as you could hope for
WASHINGTON TIMES
Katy Manning is terrific negotiating the twists and turns ... make the quest tender and wise ... exctracts warmth and meaning beneath the Hollywood mask

This is no ordinary one woman show with simple dialogue and reminiscences. Katy Manning played all the characters beautifully using hand gestures and terrific vocal changes
BRISBANE MAIL
Manning is a sweet, wide-smiling and glamorous tale-teller.
