I Am Zelda- A Live Theatrical Performance with Rita Parisi
This original play will pay tribute to Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald; a woman who battled schizophrenia for much of her life but who was also an accomplished ballet dancer, artist and writer. At the Oliver Wolcott Library on Tuesday, August 8 at 6:30 p.m.
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.
