The White Horse Theater Company will present a rare revival of Tennessee Williams' Clothes for a Summer Hotel. The play is directed by White Horse Producing Artistic Director Cyndy A. Marion.
This highly theatrical and evocative "ghost play" imagines an ethereal final meeting between the restless ghosts of literary great F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda. Set on a windy hilltop at the gates of the Asheville, NC asylum where Zelda was institutionalized before her death by fire in 1948, a desperate Scott pleads for reconciliation while Zelda blames him for her failed writing career and ensuing madness.
Taking extraordinary liberties with time and place, Clothes fuses the past, present and future as Zelda and Scott re-visit the Jazz Age of their youth on the French Riviera and the ghosts of characters, including Ernest Hemingway, who helped shape their existence.
