Award winning actress, Stephanie Zimbalist, plays the legendary Katharine Hepburn in Tea at Five, a poignant and funny one-woman show about one of America's greatest actresses.
Based on Hepburn's book Me: Stories of My Life, Tea at Five is an intimate and unforgettable trip down memory lane via Broadway and the golden age of Hollywood. The play opens in 1938 as Hepburn, despite having appeared on Broadway and garnering her first Oscar, is just being rejected for the part of Scarlet O'Hara in Gone with the Wind. Set in her beloved Connecticut home, a young Hepburn reflects on her turbulent childhood, her early education and her start in show business. The play then advances 40 years as Hepburn, now 76 and afflicted with Parkinson's, reflects on the triumphs of her career and her heart-breaking romance with Spencer Tracy. With insight, warmth and humor, Tea at Five promises to be a wonderful theatrical event for the holiday season.
