Beautiful Soup's LITTLE WARS to Return to New York this Fall

Beautiful Soup's critically acclaimed production of Steven Carl McCasland's Little Wars will return to New York City this fall in an extended engagement. The production replaces Beautiful Soup's previously announced revival of Lillian Hellman's The Autumn Garden.

Nearly 40 years before claiming to be the real Julia, Muriel Gardiner meets Hellman at a dinner party. France, 1939. Tensions are high. The booze is flowing. War is coming. The coolest women on earth are having the what-if dinner party you always imagined. Together they'll drink, scoff and face their demons. Someone has a secret. All of them have confessions. Inspired by one of the literary world's most famous scandals, Little Wars has been called "fascinating", "powerful", "outstanding", "heartbreaking" and "magical" by New York critics.

Little Wars played a limited engagement in April to sold-out audiences and critical acclaim. It returns this fall for a 3-week engagement. The play will run in repertory with a workshop of McCasland's latest play, Shades Of Blue: The Decline and Fall of Lady Day.

"Gardenias rarely survive the winter," press notes state. "In a searing new look at the final years of Billie Holiday's life, Steven Carl McCasland examines her sordid history of sexual, alcohol and drug abuse. Join Lady Day as she prepares to take her final bow."

Casting and performance schedule for both productions is still to be announced. For more information, please visit www.beautifulsouptheatercollective.org. Tickets will go on sale to the public on June 1st, 2014.
