WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It's France, 1940. Tensions are high. The booze is flowing. War is coming. Written by Steven Carl McCasland, Little Wars imagines Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, Agatha Christie, Alice B. Toklas, and Muriel Gardiner having the best what-if dinner party you can imagine. Together they'll drink, scoff, and face their demons. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret.
Shelli Place directs an all-women cast that includes Candace Barrett-Birk, Sue Scott, Elizabeth Desotelle, Laura Adams, Vanessa Gamble, Alison Edwards, and Miriam Schwartz. Little Wars is the debut performance of PRIME Productions, a new professional theater company in the Twin Cities focused on "celebrating women in their second act."
