Jewish Book Week 2020

Tristram Powell director
Honor Borwick producer

Whatever you think Dorothy Parker was like, she wasn’t.

She was famed for her ruthless wit, her satirical verses and sharp-tongued stories. She often highlighted men’s casual, contemptuous treatment of women. She herself experienced many disastrous love affairs, drank and smoked too much, but gloried in her independence – a star on the page and in performance.

Catch her spirit in this dramatic and musical tribute to Dorothy Parker and her work. Cole Porter and Ella Fitzgerald‘s songs make an accompanying echo to her sentiments-from the tongue-in-cheek to the melodramatically suicidal.

Commissioned by Jewish Book Week this tribute includes some of Parker’s most famous and celebrated stories and witticisms, featuring a cast of actors (to be announced) who will bring Parker’s New York to life.

Tristram Powell is a film and television director whose credits include adaptations of Philip Roth’s The Ghost Writer and Elizabeth Jane Howard’s Falling.

Honor Borwick has worked in the theatre, publishing, independent television and film, theatre, radio, and as a script editor. This will be her fourth year producing a theatrical piece for Jewish Book Week.
