The Portable Dorothy Parker

  • Adobe Rose Theatre 1213 Parkway Drive Santa Fe, NM, 87507 United States (map)

The Portable Dorothy Parker, by Annie Lux
Directed by Lee Costello
Performed by Margot Avery

This play is fresh from a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and two special performances at the Phoenix Artist Club in London. Here in Santa Fe, Grove Goddess Productions in conjunction with the Adobe Rose Theatre is pleased to announce the return to Santa Fe of The Portable Dorothy Parker.

The year is 1943: Dorothy Parker—famed wit, writer, and critic—is on the warpath. Viking Press is about to publish a collection of Dorothy’s poems and short stories, and Dorothy must make the selections. Now. As Dorothy sorts through her works, she reminisces about her life: her famous friends (Lillian Hellman, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and, especially, Ernest Hemingway), the wits of the Round Table, the founding of The New Yorker, and her many loves and heartbreaks. Has it all been worth it? Has she made her mark as a writer, or is she merely “clever”?

This is the type of tightly written, keenly directed, subtly performed piece that is a pleasure to breathe in.
