About the Show

One day in the 1920s, two literary legends – Edith Wharton and F. Scott Fitzgerald – met for tea, then never spoke again.

What happened?

TheatreFEST 2017 opens with the regional premiere of Adam Pasen’s new work, Tea with Edie & Fitz.  The Jazz Age and the Gilded Age collide in a play that chronicles the tempestuous meeting of these literary icons. It examines the lives of two authors at the height of their powers – and imagines what might have occurred in that notorious get-together.

Directed by Mia Self
