Written and Directed by Mark St. Germain

World Premiere

In 1937, F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, famous authors and frenemies, meet in Hollywood at the notorious Garden of Allah apartment complex. A humorous and heated exchange ensues about the cost of love, friendship and the price of being a writer.

Scott and Hem in the Garden of Allah is produced as part of a rolling world premiere agreement between Barrington Stage Company and the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, West Virginia.

Mark St. Germain is a BSC Associate Artist and the playwright of BSC’s 2012 hit play Dr. Ruth, All the Way (now in NYC as Becoming Dr. Ruth), the acclaimed 2011 BSC production of The Best of Enemies, and the 2009/2010 BSC smash hit Freud’s Last Session.
