DOROTHY PARKER TAKES A TRIP
A musical and dramatic foray into the verbally lacerating, gilded but wasted, ardently political world of Dorothy Parker and her era in letters, essays and poems, with live music and songs by George Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, Hoagy Carmichael and others.
Dorothy Parker Takes a Trip was commissioned by and premiered at Dartington International Festival. Sarah Gabriel co-wrote the piece with Richard Williams, who also directs. Also featuring: Dorothy Parker’s lawyer’s assistant and a filing cabinet.
Produced by Music at Oxford.
