CAST: 2 Women — one aged 30-40 and one aged 50s-60s (to play a Bette Davis in her 70s).

ELIZABETH FULLER (30-40) A wife, a mother of a pre-school aged son, and a writer who is currently working on a book about a real-life gospel singer and faith healer. She becomes an expert at running interference between the irascible Ms. Davis and her long-suffering husband and impressionable son.

BETTE DAVIS (50s-60s to play a Bette in her seventies) She is charming one minute and cutting and imperious the next, but always proud to be a “star.” Even though she thrives on tension and conflict throughout her 32-day stay at the Fuller home, she is ultimately a gracious lady.

Synopsis:

What if Margo Channing came for dinner but Baby Jane stayed for breakfast? Star-struck Elizabeth Fuller's dream came true one evening in 1985 when legendary actress Bette Davis came to dinner at her dilapidated New England cottage and ended up staying for over a month. Fuller’s hilarious true story captures the challenges of trying to please the irascible queen of Hollywood in so adverse a condition as ordinary life. Then, after 32 days, the New York hotel strike ends, and the star departs as quickly as she arrived. But she leaves behind a gracious thank you letter and, as Bette Davis herself might have said, one hell-uv-a good story.

“The story is delightful, the writing is entertaining, and what comes out of Bette Davis’ mouth is priceless.” – New York Post. “...[a] zingy comedy....a hoot...as funny as you could hope for...” – Washington Times.
