"Scott and Zelda" reading at Williamtown Theatre Festival

    F. Scott Fitzgerald and Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald share a famously tumultuous and public life together. In Scott and Zelda, we hear the story in their own words – drawn from novels, including The Great Gatsby and Tender Is the Night, alongside commentary from intimates like Ernest Hemingway and others. Their edgy union, challenged by traumatic breakdowns and critical failures, found its best expression in their final letters, which are among the most moving ever written.

The Williamstown Theatre Festival will present a reading of Kay Cattarulla’s Scott and Zelda on Monday, July 1st. The reading will feature John Benjamin Hickey and Patricia Clarkson and will be directed by Maria Tucci.
