Hanging Georgia is a collaborative production by two groundbreaking San Francisco Bay Area theatre companies, BootStrap Theater Foundation and TheatreFIRST.
Hanging Georgia tells the story of a young O’Keeffe struggling to make her way as a single woman teaching in Texas. Painting, falling in love, painting her feelings of falling in love, wanting to paint more than anything else, except…wanting Stieglitz. Alfred Stieglitz, famous New York photographer and magnate art dealer. Georgia’s journey from a Texas art teacher to a New York icon is full of passion and drama. For O’Keeffe it is a rags to riches story, for Stieglitz, it is Pygmalion. Sparks fly when two such towering artists live and work together.
