Porcelain and Pink was first published in 1920 in ‘The Smart Set’, a literary magazine based in New York,
which offered up-and-coming authors a platform to showcase their work to a greater audience. It was then
republished as part of Fitzgerald’s collection of short stories; ‘Tales of the Jazz Age’ in 1922. The short, one-act play is
brimming with the same wit and charm that Fitzgerald captures in his other more notable works. With sharp humour, and
sharper characters, the play will entertain and delight!
Fitzgerald states in his opening stage directions that; “Yes, you’ve guessed it. Mistaken identity is the old, rusty pivot upon
which the plot turns”. When Julie is mistaken for her sister Lois while in the bath, by none other than Lois’ love interest, Julie stirs
up chaos as easily as running water stirs up bath bubbles.
