RETURN ENGAGEMENT

Theatrical script.

An original One-Woman stage play. 

 

Jazz Club
SHE HAD MORE TO SAY THAN SING

 

The play is a ghost story, taking place on the night before Judy Garland is laid to rest in New York. It is also the eve of the Stonewall Riots.

 

Inspired from the underground and now infamous audio tapes Judy Garland began recording shortly before her death and at the request of her agent, Swifty Lazar.

 

June 1969. Two weeks after her 47th birthday, Judy Garland died in her London flat. 

 

FACT:  Concerned that an accurate account of her life might never be told, Judy Garland’s agent, Swifty Lazar, gave her a reel-to-reel recorder and encouraged her to start making tapes.  Over the last few years of her life, she did just that.  Alone, and often under the influence of prescription drugs and alcohol, Ms Garland recorded both reflections and tirades.

 

The play is a conversation between a legend and her audience.
