A stunning solo performance by renowned film, TV and theatre actress Ioana Pavelescu, awarded Best Actress at the New York City Independent Film Festival 2013, directed by Liana Ceterchi.

William Luce's monodrama celebrates the life and legacy of Zelda Fitzgerald, one of the most intriguing women of the 20th century. 

Zelda didn't seem to care about any of the obstructions she had to face. She was full of life, talent and love, and spread them all around her regardless of the uptight society she lived in. We remember her as a great soul, a devoted wife, and visionary human being and most of all, an extremely gifted writer, painter and ballet dancer.
"A sensational performance."  Broadway Baby

"A must-see show! An unforgettable and breathtaking Ioana Pavelescu is the disturbed wife of one of the most important writers of the 20th century, Zelda Fitzegerald."  Irina Margareta Nistor (writer, broadcasters, producer)

Running time: 60min. In Romanian with English surtitles.

This event is supported by the Romanian Cultural Institute and the Women's Theatre Association IF.
