Wit’s End is a new work by award winning artist Christina Reihill re-visioning the life, death and work of celebrated American writer, Dorothy Parker. Following her lonely death in 1967, a jar of her cremated remains were left abandoned in a filing cabinet for fifteen years.
In Wit’s End, Parker rises from her ashes to meet herself squarely and address her demons to write the novel she longed and failed to complete, ‘Sonnets To Suicide’. Her un-lived life is imagined through poems from the artist’s collection of poetry, SoulBurgers, a contemporary map based on Dante’s Divine Comedy. Smock Alley 14th – 18th March.
