    The back of the 1954 hardcover edition I copy I have has a review by Newsweek, TLOTC is written with the skill and clinical accuracy that is deeply tinged with pity True, DP is able to always been astute when it comes to her observations and typically to her observations to her own sex, which are honest and sometimes harsh It was moving play, which I could see why it was so popular on Broadway in 1953 It was a honest, funny and heartbreaking look into the lives of women who have lost it a The back of the 1954 hardcover edition I copy I have has a review by Newsweek, TLOTC is written with the skill and clinical accuracy that is deeply tinged with pity True, DP is able to always been astute when it comes to her observations and typically to her observations to her own sex, which are honest and sometimes harsh It was moving play, which I could see why it was so popular on Broadway in 1953 It was a honest, funny and heartbreaking look into the lives of women who have lost it all and trying to regain what they can.Also, the play readof a short story of DP than your standard play The stage directions readof prose than directions, which is helpful to the stage and the actors I was completely absorbed in the directions and got annoyed went characters were speaking, which I forgave because they were witty

    There is no review where Dottie is concerned, only a list of best quips Pardon this little eccentricity of mine I always take my shoes off when I drink Mrs Ames, this is against my best business interest, but promise me you ll never be seen carrying a lending library book the book with the cellophane dust jacket It s the badge of the unwanted woman LINSCOTT Well, life certainly treats you fine CONNIE No, Tom Life and I go Dutch.

    Great Would love to see it on stage now Lulu seems to me to be a product of her time, even though she tried so hard to fight against her time s expectations But then society s opinion can be so heavy and sit there watching and commenting from the lounge, shown by the other women of the house with no role of their own to fill The characters were believable, the stories of each person interesting so you wanted to knowPoor Charles and his selfish mother

    Dorothy Parker and Arnaud D Usseau s play captures the lives of a range of women living in a New York hotel Their lives once defined and controlled financially by men, the women s desperation, anxiety, and balloon tight control is only mitigated by resentful children, needlepoint, and the servants around them Possibly not the most sympathetic characters, Parker deftly writes these women as servants themselves to a system beyond their control.

    What a vicious little play I love these horrible, pointless old ladies, and feel deeply sorry for them Mrs Ames, this is against my best business interest, but promise me you ll never be seen carrying a lending library book the book with the cellophane dust jacket It s the badge of the unwanted woman what a horrible thing to say about people who like to read Dorothy Parker is brilliant.

    I love Dorthy Parker but I didn t love this play as much She collaborated with Arnaud D usseau to write it and while it does showcase some of her wit, it is a downer It s sort of the anti Sex and the City I am sure for it s time some of the themes they dabble in pushed social morays but now it just seems dated and frankly depressing I was disappointed by the ladies.

    Lulu, a newly widowed, stifled adventuress moves into an NYC hotel for women who s secret lives and motivations play out over a series of weeks.The dry humor and societal s of that time period entertained me throughout this short play

  9. Sue says:

    Arch and quaint in tone, this short theatrical piece still has much to say that is relevant about women and ageing.

    Challenge Reading Women 2019 A play 8 Although written and performed in the 1950s, this play has the feel of the 1930s and 40s as it dramatizes the plight of mostly upper class women before feminism Their lives defined by the men they married, Parker s wit punctuates what happens when marriage is gone.
