LITCHFIELD, Conn. - June 24, 2017 - PRLog -- Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald is often known as the crazy wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, author of The Great Gatsby. She was the glittering half of the Golden Couple of the 1920s and muse and inspiration for the flapper characters in Fitzgerald's Jazz Age stories. But before she met Scott, she was the flamboyant and outrageous Zelda Sayre, the famous belle from Montgomery, Alabama and the daughter of a judge and an artistic mother. In fact, her antics before - and after - marriage became legendary.

But Zelda was much more than a southern belle, a glittering jewel on Fitzgerald's arm, 1920s icon or an American expatriate wife in Paris. This original play will pay tribute to an often misunderstood woman; a woman who battled schizophrenia for much of her life; a woman who was also a mother, an accomplished ballet dancer, an exhibited artist and a published writer.
