ABOUT GERTRUDE & ALICE
Gertrude Stein and Alice B.Toklas - embodied by Evalyn Parry and Anna Chatterton - appear before an audience this December 19th and 20th. They have come to find out how history has treated them and what has become of their artistic / cultural influence. Over the course of the play they enact scenes - both real and imagined - from their long marriage, and grapple with how their lives and work are - or are not - remembered.
