Dramatis Personae Kelly (f), writer; Dean (m) reader

Synopsis Kelly spends her days working at a bookstore and her nights laboring over her own novel-in-progress. Her predictable, well-ordered world changes radically when she meets Dean, a new reader with a passion for devouring great literature. In the process, Kelly gets devoured as well."

Comment "Loving Fitzgerald" can be produced very simply. All locations in the play are suggested by one or two multi-purpose pieces: a chair, a table, etc. "Loving Fitzgerald" was first performed by Ensemble Studio Theatre, Los Angeles, as part of EST's Winterfest '95; later that year it was produced in New York as part of Ensemble Studio Theatre's Octoberfest '95. Subsequent productions have been mounted at The Attic Theatre (Hollywood) and The Kindness of Strangers (North Hollywood.) Darcy Rice is the author of three novels, as well as more than 50 short stories and non-fiction articles. His work has appeared in regional, national and international publications; his three novels have been translated into foreign language editions in ten countries. Other works for the theatre include the book for the musical YEARBOOK, published by Dramatic Publishing in 1996, and the one-act play "Trophies" (Attic Theatre, Hollywood.) He is a contributing editor for Orange Coast Magazine, and a member of the Dramatists Guild, Inc.
