286JAZZED – The Women of F. Scott Fitzgerald

by Gregory Von Dare

Written on commission for the City of West Hollywood in 2012 to promote reading awareness and Fitzgerald as a great American author, this play is a collage of Fitzgerald’s writings, plus pieces from Zelda Fitzgerald and Sheila Graham. It examines the four major women in Fitzgerald’s life and the impact they had on his writing. Some dialog from Tennessee William’s play about Fitzgerald, “Clothes for a Summer Hotel”, is included as well as significant original material to bind the segments together and give the piece an ending. Read by a cast of professional actors (pictured) to a live audience at a performance space in 2012, this play was a highlight of the “Big Read” event.
