The Golden Age

12 June 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Tom, an opportunistic young Scott Fitzgerald scholar, tricks his way into the home of a reclusive dowager, Isabel Hoyt, who lives with her socially withdrawn granddaughter. Mrs Hoyt was a legendary intimate of the 1920s Hemingway-Fitzgerald crowd, and Tom suspects she may have a lost chapter of The Great Gatsby among her Golden Age mementos – as well as letters proving that she was the original Daisy Buchanan!

Once she catches on to Tom’s game, Isabel even considers giving him the manuscript. But there is a terrible price attached.

Inspired by Henry James’ mysterious novella, The Aspern Papers, A R Gurney’s intriguing, witty updating originally starred Jeff Daniels, Stockard Channing and Irene Worth.  IT’s staged reading will star Will Cox, Madeleine Herd and Sheree Sellick.
