Untitled Theater Company No. 61 to Present THE MARRIAGE OF ALICE B. TOKLAS BY GERTRUDE STEIN at HERE

The world premiere of The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein will be presented at HERE from May 10 - 28.

A marriage farce in which four actors play over thirty characters. Identities are merged and submerged. Written in a style that echoes Stein's work, this is a comic fantasy with serious intent.

Starring Mia Katigbak (OBIE/Lortel winner) as Gertrude Stein, Alyssa Simon (nytheatre.com's Person of the Year) as Alice B. Toklas, Jan Leslie Harding (multiple OBIE winner) as Picasso, and Grant Neale (Ridiculous Theatre) as Hemingway.

"Writing in the style of Stein, with his tongue firmly in cheek, Einhorn has concocted a heady guest list of 1920s literati and their friends coming together to celebrate in a French farce of epic proportions." - Arch & Bruce Brown Foundation, in awarding a playwriting award for new plays with LGBT content.
