Open Fist Theatre Company is proud to present Papa, by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist John deGroot. Set in Ernest Hemingway’s home in Cuba over a long afternoon into evening, Papa is a searing glimpse into the life of the 20th-century literary giant.
A provocative portrait of a turbulent man, Papa takes us far beyond the myth of the legendary writer. Papa is based on anecdotes culled from more than four years of interviews with many of those who knew him best, among them Key West's Toby Bruce, Papa's sidekick and drinking partner for some 25 years, Gregorio Fuentes, a model for The Old Man and the Sea's Santiago and Madelaine "Sunny" Hemingway Miller, Papa's "favorite kid sister."
Playwright deGroot notes, “Everything in the play is based on events recounted by Ernest Hemingway and those who knew him. Whether all these events actually happened is something we’ll never know truly. But Hemingway and those who knew him claimed they did. This is not a play about Ernest Hemingway's enduring legacy as a writer. Rather, it is a theatrical encounter with a 19th-century American Ulysses who became lost in the 20th century, as he struggled to discover what it is to be a man.”
Papa is performed by Adrian Sparks.
“. . . the directorial hand of Martha Demson is so deftly employed as to cause the audience members to forget we're watching a performance.”
“Rarely does one witness a performer so completely inhabiting the skin of an historical figure . . . “
“Adrian Sparks, displays a Papa Hemingway in full sunset glory . . . a brawling, profane and surprisingly likable Hemingway . . . Sparks also bears an uncanny resemblance to the novelist, which doesn’t hurt.”
"Under the direction of Martha Demson, it's a fast-paced funny show..interpreted with mesmerizing vitality and humor by Adrian Sparks...seeing Mr. Sparks at work is worth a trip all by itself.
-Curtain Up Magazine
"DeGroot’s Hemingway is magnificent. . . spellbinding piece of work . . . “
“De Groot, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter, has crafted a play that reaches beneath the Hemingway legend and develops a portrait of a fascinating and tormented man.”
