A TEA WITH ZORA & MARJORIE

July 15-16: Dr. Barbara Speisman’s play imagines the first meeting of these two headstrong women (Zora Neale Hurston and Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings) in 1942, both at the height of their success, at Rawlings’ upstairs apartment at the segregated Castle Warden hotel in St. Augustine, and their ensuing conversation over “tea” – a colloquialism for whiskey! “They saw themselves as renegades and as daring, and they loved adventure,” said playwright Speisman. “They were two women who were from very different worlds.” They both lived in St. Augustine. And despite the prevailing climate of segregation, they became friends! Show times are 7:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. July 16 at the Lincolnville Museum and Cultural Center, 102 MLK Ave., St. Augustine. www.aclassictheatre.org
