Katy Manning's new role

Sunday, 01 March 2009 18:44

Television Star KATY MANNING, famous for her role as assistant JO GRANT to Jon Pertwee’s Doctor Who, has returned to the UK from Australia this week to star as BETTE DAVIS in her hilarious one-women show, the hit Off-Broadway comedy “ME & JEZEBEL”.  It is the true story of how Bette Davis appeared at a fan’s house one day, and stayed for a month - turning the poor woman’s family life upside-down. In a tour de force performance Katy plays all the parts – including the dog!  

Katy has a great fondness for East Anglia, having lived in Wells-Next-The-Sea, Norfolk in the 1970s with her partner at the time, STEWART BEVAN, the actor who played Professor CLIFF JONES, her husband in the Doctor Who story “THE GREEN DEATH”. Stewart, who now lives in Suffolk, is producing the show with his theatre company THIRD EYE THEATRE, whose Patron is actor and musician DAVID SOUL of Starsky and Hutch fame.

 “I’ve travelled all over the world,” says Katy, “and East Anglia has got to be one of the most beautiful places. A beauty matched only by the kindness of its people, who have always had a great love of the theatre.”

SPECIAL INVITATION - After the show, Katy will mingle with the audience for a chat and a laugh or two – or ten!

Katy’s well-known love of animals is reflected in a donation from this production going to the RSPCA.

Katy will be touring her beloved Norfolk and Suffolk throughout March, including the Granary Theatre in Wells, before the London run of her play in April. The show opens with a Hollywood-style party at the FISHER THEATRE BUNGAY on 11 March 2009.
