The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein
DIRECTED BY EDWARD EINHORN.
16 April 2022
“Let me give you some advice about marriage.”
Everyone’s invited to the wedding of the century. Picasso’s arrived with one of his wives, and two of his mistresses. Hemingway is here too, with his wife and his favourite matador. And at the top table, the brides, literary superstars: Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas, presiding over a banquet of conversation about art, genius, sex, fame, and love.
Fuelled only by wedding champagne (including a glass for our guests, of course!), four brave actors play over thirty characters in this breathtaking marriage farce. Edward Einhorn has been NYTheater.com’s Person of the Year, and has received Critics’ Choice awards from Village Voice, Time Out, and The New York Times.
By special arrangement with James L. Simon Productions and Untitled Theater Company No. 61
