Winner! Best Play at the Edinburgh Festival
Winner! Best Play at the Sydney Theatre Festival
Winner! Vita Award for Best Play in South Africa
This extraordinary play won first prize at both the Edinburgh Festival and the Theatre Festival in Sydney, Australia, as well as the Vita Award in South Africa as Best Play. The play begins just after the death of Gertrude Stein. Her ghost returns to Alice B. Toklas and the genesis and development of their relationship is richly portrayed. Mr. Wells has truly captured the feeling, art, music and literature of Paris of those years, when Pablo and Ernest and Henri and all of Gertrude's friends spent their free time in the great writer's salon. This play is a director's dream. It flits back and forth in time as the actors play not only Gertrude and Alice but a host of famous people who were part of their lives.

"The evening is a joy...Brisk, fun and literate." - Gannett Newspapers

GERTRUDE STEIN - robust, big woman in her late fifies. The over-powering, positive, warm personality is the essential key to the character.
ALICE B. TOKLAS - petite, dark and almost eagle-like in her angular looks. The sharp-tongued witicisms come as a surprise from this understated woman.
