Corruption, speakeasies, and flappers–oh, my! Suzanne Rindell’s The Other Typist, performed here by the charming actress Gretchen Mol, introduces us to an original narrator: a female transcriptionist in a police precinct during the Prohibition era. Rose is plain and punctilious, a woman in a man’s environment, and privy to the sordid stories and scandals of criminals. Enter Odalie, the gorgeous new “other typist,” a femme-fatale type who brings excitement into the office and Rose’s otherwise mundane life. Mystery surrounds Odalie, and as she and Rose become friends, we find neither woman is quite who she seems. Fun for fans of Jazz Age settings, strong female voices, and plots full of twists and turns.
