Hi FriendsWe have a few more performances of the excellent play on the life and writing of Dorothy Parker. It’s called “You might as well live,” written by David Frederickson of Cotton Grass Theatre. Sue Daniels plays the role of Dorothy Parker and I together with Matt Ratcliffe on keyboard and Graham Jones on double bass play jazz from the era as an integral part of the play. It’s funny, serious, rude and brilliantly acted. The music’s not bad too.
These are the dates and venues for “You might as well live”
