Artist Georgia O’Keeffe finds herself in front of an audience who bears witness as she struggles to make peace with an unresolved issue. Even beyond her death, art aficionados continue to question who is responsible for her success. O’Keeffe and husband Alfred Stieglitz maintained a passionate and tempestuous relationship for 30 years. Known as “the father of modern photography”, Stieglitz photographed O’Keeffe over 500 times and was the first to exhibit her work through his gallery 291. Grateful for his initial interest, O’Keeffe soon struggles to maintain her fierce independence in life and in her art. She takes us on a journey beginning in 1915 when she began developing her own style, until Stieglitz’s death in 1946. The struggle to survive independently within her relationship and to understand her own creative process are all part of O’Keeffe’s search to answer the question, “Was it me or was it Stieglitz?” Because this conflict between individualism and a shard life is at the heart of everyone’s personal journey, the play is as much about us as it is about O’Keeffe. Lucinda McDermott presents us with an O’Keeffe that is very human, witty, and lively. An engrossing drama about the beloved American icon.
