Alice in Black and White

About This Show

A humorous and heartbreaking period-hopping play by award-winning New York-based playwright Robin Rice, Alice in Black and Whitetells the extraordinary story of Alice Austen, a bold female street photographer of the Victorian era.

Alice in Black and White traces Austen’s love affair with photography and with her partner, Gertrude Tate, at the turn of the 20th Century, to her fall into poverty and obscurity by the 1950s. Following its world premiere in Louisville, produced by Looking for Lilith Theatre Company, this powerful and poignant production is being revived for New York audiences on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Alice Austen’s birth.
