This chapter describes various challenges faced by Kay Swift and her efforts to share her music and her talents with different audiences in the second half of the 1950s. It explains that she explored a variety of opportunities to write in London where her most successful effort was incidental music written for a 1958 play by Marc Connelly titled Hunter's Moon. In the U.S., her connection with George Gershwin offered other professional experiences. These included the composition for A Candle for St. Jude and Samuel Goldwyn's film version of Porgy and Bess.

Keywords:   London, Marc Connelly, Hunter's Moon, George Gershwin, A Candle for St. Jude, Porgy and Bess, Samuel Goldwyn
