Dinner with Dorothy
Part of the Hampstead & Highgate Literary Festival
Algonquin Hotel, New York, sometime in the 1920s…
You are hereby invited for dinner with the delectable Dorothy Parker: poet, screen/short story/song-writer, critic, satirist, editor, activist, main-stay of the legendary Algonquin Round Table and wisecracking observer of modern life. 50 years on from her death, we celebrate one of the twentieth century’s greatest wits, with acapella jazz from vocal harmony trio Threebop, readings of Parker’s glorious works by actors Sarah Sigal and Alex Woolnough, and a sumptuous three-course Zest meal.
Come along dressed in your best 1920s garb and take your Friday night dinner in style.
