Steven Carl McCasland's Little Wars is set to return to online streaming on stream.theatre from Monday 19 April to Sunday 16th May 2021.


Featuring lauded performances from Linda Bassett and Juliet Stevenson the compelling production brought together an all-star, all-female cast of British stage and screen legends, including Debbie Chazen, Natasha Karp, Catherine Russell, Sarah Solemani and Sophie Thompson.


Directed by Hannah Chissick (Flashdance, UK & International tour; Pack of Lies, Menier Chocolate Factory) the rehearsed reading was filmed at the cast's homes and edited together.


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.


Thomas Hopkins and Michael Quinn of Ginger Quiff Media commented ...


"We're thrilled by the continually overwhelming response to this production, which showcases the talents of some incredible women.


It's been a fantastic opportunity to bring the project to life during the pandemic, and we're pleased that more people can experience the all-star offering once again."

Synopsis


Featuring critically-acclaimed performances from Linda Bassett and Juliet Stevenson, the compelling production of Little Wars brought together an incredible all-star female cast, including Debbie Chazen, Natasha Karp, Catherine Russell, Sarah Solemani and Sophie Thompson, directed by Hannah Chissick.


The streaming raised over £7,500 for Women For Refugee Women during its initial run.


This incredible charity continues to support women in need during this difficult time.


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 and secrecy lingers in the air, but with libations flowing and the threat of World War II looming the guests are close to boiling point.
