TWEED THEATRE presents Bad Dates and The Last Flapper

A double bill of intriguing one-woman shows.

Bad Dates

Join vivacious American Hayley preparing for a date.  As she chooses shoes and outfits, she relates her life story and describes the horrendously bad dates she has had so far. Hayley shares her love of work, shoes, her daughter Vera, and sex. Hilarious, poignant and ultimately life affirming, this play will have you laughing, crying and hoping, along with Hayley, that it’ll be OK in the end!

The Last Flapper

Join Zelda Fitzgerald, wife of the famous author, F ‘Scotch’ Fitzgerald, and share her last day inside a lunatic asylum.  This play is based on Zelda’s letters and stories and is at times frightening and scarily funny, at others heartbreakingly sad.   The Last Flapper is a reminder of this often ignored aspect of health.
