THE real-life experience of having legendary screen actress Bette Davis come to stay is at the heart of Me and Jezebel which comes to The Radlett Centre next week.
It was written by Elizabeth Fuller who, by pure chance, welcomed the actress into her somewhat dilapidated New England cottage in the summer of 1985.
The play is being performed at The Radlett Centre direct from the Edinburgh Fringe at 8pm next Thursday, September 3.
What was supposed to be an overnight stay turned into an escapade which lasted 32 days, during which time Davis turned Fuller's home and life upside down.
