A new play about Louise Brooks titled The Winter Gift is set to open in the UK. From the venue website: "A new play by award winning writer Tim Davies, charting the tumultuous life of legendary silent screen icon Louise Brooks, contrasting her time as a Beautiful, brilliant, and uncompromising young actress, too wild to be contained by the Hollywood studio system or the accepted societal and sexual mores of the time and whose mixture of innocence and intense eroticism were perfectly captured in her celebrated work with German director G.W. Pabst, with the middle aged alcoholic Brooks, living alone, destitute and all but forgotten, until a chance encounter with a devoted fan..."
