Edinburgh Fringe: Me and Jezebel, 7-31 August, Gilded Balloon, Edinburgh

8 Aug

Doctor Who fans in Edinburgh for the Edinburgh Fringe really have no excuse not to head to see ex-companion Katy Manning (Jo Grant in the Jon Pertwee era) star in one-woman show Me & Jezebel (Gilded Balloon, Wine Bar, 4 – 5.15pm).

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.

Full details are up on the Gilded Balloon website.
