LITTLE WARS is a fabulous new play exploring the twenty year relationship between one of history's most famous lesbian couples Gertrude Stein & Alice B. Toklas, is being presented at the New York City's Clarion Theatre starting Thursday May 7th through May 30th. Set in France in 1940 the tensions are high, the booze is flowing & war is coming. Playwright Steven Carl McCasland was inspired by one of the literary world's most famous scandals. The play highlights the twenty years Alice B. Toklas & Gertrude Stein shared together & Stein's great disgust with the portrayal of women & suggestions of lesbianism in Hellman's The Children Hour. LITTLE WARS features Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, Agatha Christie, Alice B. Toklas & Muriel Gardiner having the best what-if dinner party imaginable. Together they'll drink, scoff & face their demons. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret. The cast features Polly McKie as Gertrude Stein, Pennylynn White as Alice B. Toklas, Kristen Gehling as Muriel Gardner, Kimberly Faye Greenberg as Lillian Hellman, Kim Rogers as Agatha Christie, Dorothy Weems as Dorothy Parker & Samantha Hoefer as Bernadette.
