The Last Flapper play brings Zelda Fitzgerald to Cambria



They say behind every great man, there's a great woman, and that's certainly true of author F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda.

The Pewter Plough Playhouse in Cambria is showing The Last Flapper, which chronicles the life of Zelda based on her letters and stories, through Nov. 26.

This one-woman play is the definitive portrait of Mrs. F. Scott Fitzgerald (played by Beth Marshall) as a glamorous, fun-loving, and tragic woman. Set in an insane asylum on the last day of Zelda's life, the play unfolds as a hypnotic session. Zelda tells of her innocent rebellion as a Southern belle, of her destructive marriage, and of her mental disintegration.

Tickets rage from $20 to $25. Visit for more information.
