News: Teaser trailer released for Little Wars starring Juliet Stevenson, Linda Bassett, and Sophie Thompson

The trailer has been released for the all-star digital revival of Steven Carl McCasland’s Little Wars, starring Linda Bassett, Sophie Thompson, Juliet Stevenson and more.

Bringing together six exceptional women, 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 the most fantastical what-if dinner party imaginable. 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.

Directed by Hannah Chissick (Flashdance, UK & International tour; Pack of Lies, Menier Chocolate Factory) the new production will be filmed and made available to download and stream online, in collaboration with Southwark’s The Union Theatre. The entire 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.

Little Wars will stream worldwide from Tuesday 3 – Sunday November 2020.
