A dinner party during the Second World War unites celebrated writers Agatha Christie, Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas with a mysterious guest.
With copious booze flowing, acid-tongued barbs flying, and the threat of global conflict looming, the guests and the world around them are close to boiling point. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret.
Set in the French Alps in 1940, Steven Carl McCasland s Little Wars is an enthralling, entertaining and ultimately moving portrait of seven exceptional women and a thrilling fiction based on truth.
It was workshopped Off-Off-Broadway, first performed in 2015, and received an acclaimed digital premiere in 2020, featuring Linda Bassett, Sarah Solemani, Juliet Stevenson and Sophie Thompson. It provides glorious opportunities for an all-female cast to play some of the greatest literary figures of the twentieth century.
