based on the writings of Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald
by William Luce
Sunday, August 17th
4:00 PM to 5:00 PM: Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and meet “Zelda” – the symbol of the Jazz Age; a legend created by her famous husband F. Scott Fitzgerald. Though she played the role of the Compleat Flapper, she was altogether different from that sentimental stereotype. A talented author herself, she succumbed to schizophrenia and became a “graduate of half a dozen mental institutions.” The play occurs when she is 47, the day before her tragic death in a fire at Highlands Hospital in Asheville, N. C. During the play, Zelda relives the laughter and tears of her struggle for identification apart from Scott.
The play from 5:00 to 6:00; dinner at 6:00.
1896 Old Field Creek Road
