Gertrude and Alice (2016)
March 5th, 2016 – March 27th, 2016
A new work from acclaimed feminist theatre collective Independent Aunties exploring the lives, love, and legacy of queer icons Gertrude Stein and Alice B Toklas.
Visiting the audience in the present day, Gertrude and Alice come to find out how history has treated them. The couple recounts stories of their 40-year relationship, of meetings with iconic artists and writers, and of Alice’s overwhelming, consuming devotion to Gertrude’s genius. Before they leave, they want to find out what has become of their artistic and cultural influence, and how their lives and work are – or are not – remembered. (Buddies in Bad Times)
