The Last Flapper
A drama by William Luce
Presented by the Parish Players

Directed by Linda Neubelt

Co-produced by Kay Morton and Toni Egger

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.

"A cry of the heart that relentlessly delivers the truth." - The New York Times

THE LAST FLAPPER was first presented at the Alley Theatre in September, 1987. It was directed by Charles Nelson Reilly.

Performances: Thursday - Saturday, April 12-14, 19-21 at 7:30pm

Out of Our Fathers' House
Based on Eve Merriam's
Growing Up Female In America: Ten Lives
Presented by the Parish Players

Directed by Toni Egger

Produced by Linda Neubelt

Out of Our Fathers' House is taken entirely from the diaries, journals, and letters of the 18th, 19th and 20th century women portrayed.

Told through monologues created from the actual writings of the characters listed above, this play is designed as a hypothetical conversation between these women who lived at various times over a period of almost two hundred years. In spite of the differences in their eras, these women are united through the common challenges of their efforts to grow "out of their fathers' house."

The play was adapted by Daniel Schrier and arranged for the stage in 1975 by Paula Wagner, Jack Hofsis, and Eve Merriam with Music by Ruth Crawford Seeger.

Performances: Thursday - Saturday, May 17-19, 24-26 at 7:30pm

True West
A drama by Sam Shepard

Directed by Ray Chapin

Co-produced by Ray Chapin and Kay Morton

From director Ray Chapin: True West is the third of a Family Trilogy which includes Curse of the Starving Class, a play I directed for the Parish Players in 2009. I have a keen interest in Shepard's honest exploration of troubled familial relationships, a timeless and compelling theme. True West exhibits the pathos of the best Greek Tragedies yet contains much humor, both of which I hope to highlight. Another aspect of the play concerns the meaning of the West — to one brother it represents freedom and independence, and for the other the new West is a place of suburbs and tract-housing. This conflict of ideas continues to be relevant today.

Performances: Thursday - Saturday, July 19-21, 26-28 at 7:30pm
Sunday Matinées July 29, 27 at 3pm
