Experience the original flame wars, 1940s style!
Author Allan Wright Green will introduce this dramatic reading of his great aunt's correspondence with America's most notorious architect. Words on Fire: The Letters of Rose Pauson and Frank Lloyd Wright is a one-act play faithfully based on the colorful correspondence between client and architect as documented in the book Building The Pauson House: The Letters of Frank Lloyd Wright and Rose Pauson.
The dialogue smolders briskly from passion to animosity with a wit, thoughtfulness and crackling cadence rarely spoken today. Performed by the Theatre students of Scottsdale Community College in the Amphitheater. Though the event is free, please RSVP for guaranteed priority seating.
We encourage you to arrive earlier in the day to browse the Expo and enter for the free door prizes to be drawn at 2:30.
