Written and Directed by Mark St. Germain
In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway - famous authors, friends and rivals - meet one evening at the notorious Garden of Allah apartment complex in LA where Fitzgerald is temporarily living. A humorous and heated exchange ensues in this smart and powerful drama about the cost of love, friendship and the personal and professional price of being a writer.
Scott and Hem in the Garden of Allah is produced as part of a rolling world premiere agreement between Barrington Stage Company and the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
Mark St. Germain is a BSC Associate Artist and the playwright of BSC's 2012 hit play Dr. Ruth, All the Way (playing at Hartford's TheaterWorks this summer), the acclaimed 2011 BSC production of The Best of Enemies, and the 2009/2010 BSC smash hit Freud's Last Session.
Tickets start at $40; Low Priced Previews August 15 & 16 are $15 all seats.
