Carol Lempert's solo show That Dorothy Parker has been added to the Soho Playhouse Summer Solo Series on Aug. 5.

That Dorothy Parker will serve as the final offering of the celebration of solo work that began June 18. Artists represented include Nilaja Sun, Aasif Mandvi, Adam Rapp, Heather Raffo, Stephen Payne and Glen Berger.

The final week of performances begins with 9 Parts of Desire: In Concert, written and performed by Heather Raffo, with music by Amir ElSaffar (July 30); Underneath The Lintel by Glen Berger (Aug. 4); and That Dorothy Parker (Aug. 5). Performances are at 8 PM.

That Dorothy Parker, according to press notes, "is a solo show that weaves together hilarious anecdotes of the ten years Mrs. Parker spent lunching at New York's famed Algonquin Round Table, her involvement in the Spanish Civil war and selections of her writing."

Lempert's solo work was previously presented as part of the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival.

For tickets, priced $35, phone (212) 691-1555 or visit SohoPlayhouse. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Spalding Gray Scholarship Fund. The Soho Playhouse is located at 15 Vandam Street, one block north of Spring Street, just west of 6th Avenue.
