Kimberly Faye Greenberg, Maggie Wirth & More Set for Beautiful Soup's LITTLE WARS Workshop, Begin. 4/23Beautiful Soup Theater will present the World Premiere workshop production of Steven Carl McCasland's Little Wars. The limited engagement will play Roy Arias Stage II Theatre beginning April 23rd. Beautiful Soup is best known for reviving lost or oft-forgotten works, but occasionally presents workshops of new plays and musicals.

In this imagined meeting of the minds, Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas have invited playwright Lillian Hellman, satirist Dorothy Parker and novelist Agatha Christie to their country home in France on a cold March night in 1939. Tensions are high, the booze is flowing and Europe is on the brink of war. When a mysterious woman arrives and prompts their questions, the curious writers expose more of themselves than they've ever put on the page.

Steven Carl McCasland's last play, neat & tidy, premiered at the Gene Frankel Theatre in spring of 2012 to critical acclaim and was named one of Examiner.com's Top Ten Dramatic Picks of the Year. His Parisian adaptation of Alice in Wonderland enjoyed an extended run at the SoHo Playhouse in 2011.

The production will star Maggie Wirth as Gertrude Stein and Kimberly Faye Greenberg (Lift, One Night With Fanny Brice) as Lillian Hellman. Celebrated Alabaman-stage actress Dorothy Weems, who is best known for her one-woman play set in 1940's Tangier, will make her New York stage debut as Dorothy Parker. Additional casting and creatives will be announced at a later date.

A teaser trailer for Little Wars is available on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjrPRdPBum0.

Tickets for the intimate production ($18) are available now at http://beautifulsoup.showclix.com . Performances at Roy Arias Stage II Theatre will take place Wednesday through Saturday at 7:00pm, with a 2:00pm matinee on Sunday, April 27th.
