In 1980, Mary McCarthy told Dick Cavett that everything Lillian Hellman says is a lie, including and and the. She also claimed to know a woman who could prove it. And with those words, a legendary literary feud began. In Little Wars, its France, 1940. Tensions are high. The booze is flowing. War is coming. Inspired by one of the literary worlds most famous scandals, Steven Carl McCaslands LITTLE WARS features Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, Agatha Christie, Alice B. Toklas and Muriel Gardiner having the best what-if dinner party imaginable. Together theyll drink, scoff and face their demons. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret.
Have you ever dreamed of attending one of Gertrude Steins infamous salons? Little Wars is about as close as you can get. I cant recall the last time I saw so many incredible personalities portrayed on stage, let alone in a cast entirely of women. After Ellen
