About this show

This insightful and clever adaptation of Dorothy Parker short stories provides for a moving and whimsical evening of two one-act musicals. The first act interweaves four of Ms. Parker's works to examine the experience of four very different women of diverse backgrounds and ages, each questioning what is expected of them emotionally and socially. The second act, based on Parker's well known "Such A Pretty Little Picture," finds us in the yard and mind of George Wheelock, a Walter Mitty type individual. As he responsibly trims his hedges, he fantasizes and re-writes the story of his seemingly picture-perfect family (devoted wife and daughter) and his ordinary life, discovering compromises of his own potential and individuality that leave him examining his soul and questioning his future.
