'The Last Flapper is an interesting and intriguing look at the wife and role model for Zelda -the Great Gatsby.  An actress will be able to stretch herself as many levels are explored, from crazy to fun-loving to angry, scared and downright mean.  A wonderful piece for a full length drama or just a dramatic interp. or audition.
