a play about Zelda Fitzgerald

Mr. Fitzgerald is a novelist. Mrs. Fitzgerald is a novelty.

-Ring Lardner

Zelda Sayre is the belle of Alabama, the outrageous good-time girl who captures the heart – and imagination – of novelist F. Scott Fitzgerald.


Their life together is one great party, from the madness of Jazz Age New York to the gin-soaked glamour of the Riviera. Then Zelda takes up writing herself — and more than her marriage begins to crack up.

'Witty, thoughtful and full of subtle nuances, this play about F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wife is not to be missed. Kelly Burke’s performance as Zelda is a tour de force — enthralling. Burke effortlessly creates this attractive, intelligent heroine, making her sympathetic, enigmatic and engaging in equal measure. Brilliantly written, smoothly staged and superbly acted, Zelda is one of the best hours you will spend this festival.' 


'An outstanding piece about the agonies of art and the burdens of love.'
