Little Wars, by Steven Carl McCasland, focuses on a fictional meeting of Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas, Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Agatha Christie and the mysterious American woman that ties them all together. The gathering takes place at Gertrude and Alice’s home in the French Alps in 1940 on the eve of the German occupation of Paris. Against the historical backdrop of the Holocaust, the playwright uses intelligence and wit to present an intriguing series of “what ifs” in this fast-paced 90-minute play.
