A one-woman play exploring the art, life, and loves
of Georgia O'Keeffe,
the iconic 20th Century American artist
Two forces shaped Georgia O’Keeffe as an artist and a woman: her passionate quest to find and express her artistic voice, and her tumultuous love affair and 31-year marriage to the revolutionary photographer and champion of the Modern Art Movement, Alfred Stieglitz. In O’KEEFFE!, Georgia–witty, irreverent and decades ahead of her time–shares revealing scenes from her challenging life as she asks the audience to help her decide whether her iconic place in Modern Art was shaped by “me or Stieglitz?”.

"AN ENGAGING ODYSSEY...Wickwire continues to be a fascinating, immensely talented actor; her interpretation in O'KEEFFE! is enchanting and provocative."
"Thank you so much for bringing ‘O'Keeffe’ to the Crowley Theater. Carolyn Wickwire was as delicious and full of surprise as a meal at Cochineal. As an artist and a woman I was inspired and moved. It is so hard to balance love and art and it was comforting to see the issues of a complex life simplified into a bite-sized meal. I will savor it for a long time to come.”
"My muse and I went to Marfa, TX last night to watch Carolyn Wickwire transform herself into Georgia O’Keeffe in the play titled ‘O’Keeffe’. Ms. Wickwire was mesmerizing in her metamorphoses and at times I felt I was watching and hearing the real Ms. O’Keeffe."
"We both wanted to thank you for producing and bringing O'Keeffe to Marfa. We had a great time! We both thought Carolyn Wickwire was really inspiring to watch. The set design was terrific. All a pleasure for fans of figurative art."
This moving and compassionate comedy-drama examines food, sex and aging from the perspective of a couple who have spent a lifetime together and who know their time is coming to an end. "There is fun to be had with Tom Cole's ABOUT TIME." —NY Magazine. "Humor is one of the essential factors in survival during the aging process, and I have just had several comforting and fortifying hours of laughter." —NY Newsday. "ABOUT TIME has an edge of stylization reminiscent of Beckett's minimalism and astutely depicts the concerns of the aged." —BackStage.
ABOUT TIME takes place in the condominium kitchen of an old married couple. Over the course of the day from breakfast and lunch to dinner and a late snack, the couple talk about everything under the sun, especially food, sex, children and aging. She is getting slower than she used to be; in fact, it takes all morning to chop vegetables. He cannot move around quite as fast as he once did. Neither see their children as much as they would like. Yet both certainly have their wits about them as the dialogue snaps and crackles its way through the four scenes. Faced with the thought of mortality, they grapple with what it means to share—and to come to the end of—a life together.
This production will premiere at Talking Horse Theatre in Columbia, MO,
July 18-20 and 25-27.
It is available for booking beginning in August 2014.
