Description

This one-man two-act play premiered, after several delays, in Key West, Florida, in 2009. It examines another phase in the life of Nobel and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway. From the joys of absinthe to the appeal of Ava Gardner, Ernest Hemingway turns to the exotic temptations of China and his third wife, Martha Gellhorn. Back in Cuba, he chases U-boats and tracks Nazi spies as a prelude to the European war and flying missions with the Royal Air Force. Whether commanding French freedom fighters or liberating the Ritz Hotel in Paris, Ernest manages to encounter Sylvia Beach, Marlene Dietrich, Pablo Picasso and Mary Welsh (later to become his fourth wife). While serving in "the death factory" that is World War Two, his emotional resources are strained when his first born son is taken prisoner by the Nazis.
