This surely has to be one of the most extreme cases of a guest overstaying their welcome. Me & Jezebel is based on the true story of famous actress Bette Davis seeking sanctuary at the home of a friend of a friend after a hotel strike in New York puts her on the couch circuit. Playwright Elizabeth Fuller and her family were so affected by Davis's 32-day stay in 1985 that she turned the experience into a magazine story, a novel and now a play. The way she tells it, Davis dishes on rivals and other celebs of the time (Joan Crawford, Paul Newman), takes over the kitchen, teaches salty language to their four-year-old and almost ends the writer's marriage. Veteran Ron Jones directs the comedy for Queensbury Theatre, which also stars Shanae’a Rae Moore (Classical Theatre Company's The Barber of Seville) and Mary Hooper (Theater LaB Houston's Love, Loss, and What I Wore). 8 p.m. August 4. Continuing 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. August 4 through August 27. 12777 Queensbury Lane. For information, call 713-467-4497 or visit queensburytheatre.org. $20 to $25.
