by Gregory Von Dare
Two sophisticated women, Beryl and Irene, one a writer and one an editor in New York of the 1950s, pretend to be Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas in order to soothe their own troubled relationship. As they play out the life stories of Gertrude and Alice, Beryl and Irene get a renewed sense of their love for each other and come to appreciate the horrors of war-torn Europe in the 20th Century and the difficulties of being an innovator in literature.
(One Act – Two characters – about 60 minutes)
