LIZ (ELIZABETH FULLER) – Female, 30’s to late 40’s. A writer who lives with her husband and young son in Westport, Connecticut. Liz is dazzled by Miss Davis, but she has to juggle the needs of her husband (who wants Bette out of the house), her impressionable son (who begins to imitate Bette) and the endless demands of the diva herself.
