MISSOURI SOLO PLAY FESTIVAL: Saving Rose O’Neill
Written and performed by Marcia Haseltine
Directed by Robert Bradley
World premiere. Renowned, flamboyant, bohemian American artist Rose O’Neill painted, illustrated, made sculptures and created the Kewpie doll from which she made millions. She wrote novels, short stories and poems. In the Spring of 1940, she is at her Taney County home Bonniebrook in rural southwest Missouri. Friends and family depend on her financially and $26.76 remains in her bank account. Her artistic sources seemed to have dried up. What will save Rose O’Neill?
