The Last Flapper
Eastgate Theatre and Arts Centre - Studio
Bad Dates and The Last Flapper A double bill of intriguing one-woman shows.
Bad Dates Join vivacious American Hayley preparing for a date. As she
chooses shoes and outfits, she relates her life story and describes the
horrendously bad dates she has had so far. Hayley shares her love of work,
shoes, her daughter Vera, and sex. Hilarious, poignant and ultimately life
affirming, this play will have you laughing, crying and hoping, along with
Hayley, that it’ll be OK in the end! The Last Flapper Join Zelda
Fitzgerald, wife of the famous author, F ‘Scotch’ Fitzgerald, and share
her last day inside a lunatic asylum. This play is based on Zelda’s
letters and stories and is at times frightening and scarily funny, at
others heartbreakingly sad. The Last Flapper is a reminder of this often
ignored aspect of health.
