Frontier Life in America, a Fantasy in Three Acts

Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald is the captivating and intense heroine of this fantasy dramatization of her dazzling exploits, her writing, painting and obsessive dancing, her struggle as a woman and artist in an ambivalent, often hostile environment. Counter-pointing Zelda's blazing desire to push beyond all boundaries of the ordinary are: the spectra of Virginia Woolf, and old world artist with a room of her own; the romantic F. Scott Fitzgerald, Zelda’s spiritual ally; Ernest Hemingway whose linear mentality and macho posturing make him their adversary; and Gertrude Stein, mother, priestess and oracle. All play their parts on literary and sexual frontiers distinctly biographical, this contemporary morality play explores both truths and mystifications about men and women, alienation and love, creativity and madness.
