“Men Seldom Make Passes At Girls Who Wear Glasses”– Dorothy Parker
Theatre Incarnate weaves together four of Dorothy Parkers short stories and interweaves them with five of her poems into a delightful evening of sharp wit and strange fits of passions. Dorothy Parker was one of the wittiest woman of the last century and participant at the infamous Algonquin Round Table. Parker’s writing is brilliant, unrelenting, and fiercely funny!

“Encapsulating all this pain and humour, McLean is delightful as our unnamed heroine who, it can be no coincidence, shares Parker’s distinctive droll drawl in flapper-esque beads and heels. The classy production is set in a simple black-walled space, which enables it to take the line regarding “mottoes on the wall” to heart, a move that graces the set with Parker witticisms such as “a girl’s best friend is her mutter.” In like fashion, the details on all fronts have been carefully crafted and Parker’s words have been given the attention and respect they so richly deserve.”
