Due to popular demand, the digital revival of Steven Carl McCasland’s drama is now available to watch until the 3rd December.
Directed by Hannah Chissick (Flashdance, UK & International tour; Pack of Lies, Menier Chocolate Factory), the revival brings together an all-female cast of British stage and screen legends, including Juliet Stevenson (Truly, Madly, Deeply;The Doctor, Almeida; Blindness, Donmar Warehouse), Linda Bassett (Call The Midwife; East is East) and Sophie Thompson (Feel Good; Present Laughter, Old Vic).
The cast also includes: Debbie Chazen (The Smoking Room; The Girls, West End), Natasha Karp (Rags, Park Theatre; The Kite Runner, West End), Catherine Russell (Holby City; What The Butler Saw, Curve Theatre), and Sarah Solemani (Him & Her; Bad Education).
The rehearsed reading was filmed at the cast’s homes and edited together. It is now available to watch until the 3rd December in collaboration with Southwark’s Union Theatre.
Little Wars unites literary figureheads Gertrude Stein (Bassett), her girlfriend Alice Toklas (Russell), Dorothy Parker (Chazen), Lillian Hellman (Stevenson) and Agatha Christie (Thompson), with anti-fascist freedom fighter Muriel Gardiner (Solemani), in this deliciously comic and
touching drama about the power of coming together for a shared cause. Tensions are high andsecrecy lingers in the air, but with libations flowing and the threat of World War II looming the guests are close to boiling point.
The cast and creative team are raising money in aid of Women For Refugee Women, a cause that remains close to their values, and the underlying message of the play.
