Overview

Based on her letters and stories, this exciting play is the definitive portrait of Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald: the glamorous, fun loving and tragic Zelda. As in The Belle of Amherst, Lucifer's Child, and Bronte, Luce reveals the contradictions and mysteries of an extraordinary woman while fashioning a moving yet witty play. Set in an insane asylum on the last day of Zelda's life, the play unfolds as a hypnotic session. Zelda tells of her innocent rebellion as a southern belle, of her destructive marriage and of her mental disintegration.
