    WIT & WRATH: The Life & Times of Dorothy Parker
    2:00 PM

    A One Woman Show Written and Performed by Claudia Baumgarten and Directed by Diana E.H. Shortes

    Dorothy Parker was a wit, a social observer with an acid tongue, a brilliant writer of poetry, short stories, book and drama critiques and a compassionate advocate for the less fortunate.

    In Wit & Wrath, Claudia Baumgarten, as Mrs. Parker, skewers, martini in hand, the Jazz Age, her fellow Round Table writers, the cultural desert of Hollywood and especially herself and her tumultuous love life. Wit & Wrath is an edgy, fleshy, literary homage to Mrs. Parker, the most widely read and quoted woman of the 1920s.  Why are her biting theater critiques, incisive social observations and poignant short-stories still relevant and entertaining in the 21st century?  Audiences now have the opportunity to discover why and to appreciate anew the truly phenomenal, outrageous Dorothy Parker and her writings, which have stood the test of time. 

    Admission is free.  Light refreshments following the performance. For more information, please call (251) 208-7097.

    Claudia Baumgarten has had a 10-year romance with the writings of Dorothy Parker.  After having read almost every work written by or about Mrs. Parker, Ms. Baumgarten created this solo show highlighting her fascinating life and memorable work. Wit & Wrath was performed to sold-out audiences at the New Orleans Tennessee Williams Festival in both 2014 and 2015 and at the 2017 Washington, D.C. Capital Fringe Festival.  

    Claudia has spent three decades performing and creating original work.  A natural story-teller, she also enjoys performing with and for children at schools and libraries. Her newest project is working with Women of the Tricentennial, a troupe of actor/historians in period dress who share the numerous contributions of New Orleans women, past and present, to the City of New Orleans. 

     Ms. Baumgarten and Ms. Shortes are delighted to bring this original work to Mobile.
