Based on her letters and stories, this fascinating one-woman play is the definitive portrait of Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald: the glamorous, fun loving and tragic Zelda. Luce reveals the contradictions and mysteries of an extraordinary woman while fashioning a moving yet witty play. Set in an insane asylum in Asheville, NC on the last day of her life, Zelda tells of her innocent rebellion as a southern belle, of her destructive marriage and of her mental disintegration.
