The one-woman show “The Last Flapper” comes to Waynesville’s HART Studio this month, portraying the life of Zelda Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald, wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald, spent the final years of her life in Asheville’s Highland Mental Hospital. She died in a fire that swept through the facility in 1948. During the early years of her stay, her husband would come to visit and stay at the Grove Park Inn.
The play is based on her writings and was created by playwright William Luce in 1987.
Performances will run at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 4 and 5, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 6. Tickets are $8 for all adults and $5 for students.
