Dorothy Rothschild Parker roared into the 1920s from a topsy-turvy childhood that left her orphaned in New York City as a young single adult. From that spot she worked her way into writing for Vanity Fair and Vogue, sipping lunch cocktails as a prime star of the Algonquin Round Table, simultaneously keeping both men and her dogs at her feet. Colleen Webster reads from Parker’s poems, examines her role in progressive politics and even her leap across the country to Hollywood where she penned many successful screenplays.
Follow the trial and triumphs of this “little Hoper” as she famously referred to herself. A projected show of images will accompany this hour long show, with questions taken afterwards.
