The Trafalgar Studios 2 becomes the home of “Zelda” from September, with Kelly Burke writing and performing in a show that looks at the lives of F Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda, both American novelists whose work has been celebrated for almost a century.
Fitzgerald is best known as the writer of “The Great Gatsby”, a piece of literature that has stood the test of time, with another movie version set to hit screens in 2013 following the novel’s original publication in 1925. But in “Zelda”, the focus is on the writer’s relationship with Zelda Fitzgerald (née Sayre), their time together and the later effects of her schizophrenia against the backdrop of New York’s Jazz Age and more.
Zelda was the author behind books like “Save Me the Waltz” and so it was not just Scott that had a literary effect, but it was the latter’s work that made the duo a celebrity couple in the 1920s, with the pair also among those in the Lost Generation that moved to Europe in that decade.
“Zelda” is set to be a compelling piece of theatre as it lands at Trafalgar Studios 2 on Tuesday 18th September 2012. Those wishing to pick up theatre tickets then have until Thursday 4th October 2012 to catch the show.
