    What a humorous and, at the same time, entirely tragic piece about two historical figures crashing into each other! I love the use of repetition and the way the dialogue flows. A brilliantly brief commentary on the people who have "made it" and the ones who believe they never will.

    A quippy, to-the-point recreation of a tea engagement between literary titans gleaned from a single, caustic line in Wharton's diary. Terrific work.

    I love the scintillating dialogue and the contrast between the characters.

    Ah, the self-involved impatience of youth! It’s the perfect foil to the gravitas of experience. And in the hands of O’Grady, it proves a delightful opportunity to pit the callow F. Scott Fitzgerald against the august Edith Wharton in a mismatch of wits — guess who prevails? Read this gem of a play and find out. Tea has never been so satisfying.

    Ms. O'Grady thinks up great plots. This could really happen btween two opposites.Too bad they couldn't have been more mature but Ms. O'Grady makes it clear that there's no meeting of the minds. And that writers are temperamental. I love this literary theme.

    I assign The Great Gatsby to my students every other year. They often ask me about the author (and his temperament). I tell them that my research had led me to believe he was gifted but overwhelmed by self-doubt. Exactly the F. Scott this gem of a play depicts. This play reminds us that talent does not guarantee likeability nor does it guarantee camaraderie with other talented people. Loved it!

    This is a delightful visit with two legendary writers in their element: revealing their true character. Jennifer O'Grady shares her love of history and her affection for these people in a way that makes you absolutely sure this is a recollection of a true moment.

    Much fun, and a deeper dive into two literary characters than it appears.
