New York City, 1943. Dorothy Parker – member of the legendary Algonquin Round Table, famous for her razor wit – reluctantly entertains a young woman editor from Viking Press.

Mrs. Parker reminisces about her life: her famous friends (Lillian Hellman, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway), the wits of the Round Table (Alexander Woollcott, Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman), the founding of The New Yorker magazine, her Hollywood screenwriting days and her many loves and heartbreaks as she sorts through her poems and short stories, for Viking’s new collection: The Portable Dorothy Parker.

The Daily Telegraph names The Portable Dorothy Parker as one of the Best Theatre shows of the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/theatre/what-to-see/edinburgh-festival-2017-best-theatre-see-year/
