The Portable Dorothy Parker
The Adobe Rose Theatre
Santa Fe, NM
Share this event:


Showing at the Adobe Rose Theatre for two weekends only!

The year is 1943, the place, New York City. Dorothy Parker famed for her wit and her presence at the legendary Algonquin Round Table is in her hotel room. Viking Press is about to publish a collection of Dorothy's poems and short stories, and Dorothy must make the selections. Now. An editor is about to show up at her door. Even worse, a young woman editor. They could have at least sent a man, preferably a good-looking young one. But of course all the men worth their salt are off fighting the Germans or Japanese, including Dottie's husband Alan Campbell.

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
(Alexander Woollcott, Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman), 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?

Fresh from a great run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and two special performances at the Phoenix Artist Club in London, Grove Goddess Productions is pleased to announce the return to Santa Fe of The Portable Dorothy Parker a one-woman play written by Annie Lux, directed by Lee Costello, and performed by Margot Avery at the Adobe Rose Theatre October 5th - October 15th.

"This is the type of tightly written, keenly directed, subtly performed piece that is a pleasure to breathe in."
   -Front Row Center (FringeNYC)

"A beautifully constructed and performed theatrical homage."
   -Exeunt Magazine (Edinburgh Fringe)

"The wit and occasional wisdom of New York writer and socialite Dorothy Parker is brought to pleasing life
by American actress Margot Avery."
  -London Daily Mail (Edinburgh Fringe)
