In 1980, Mary McCarthy told Dick Cavett that “everything Lillian Hellman says is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the’.” She also claimed to know a woman who could prove it. And with those words, a legendary literary feud began. In Little Wars, it’s France, 1940. Tensions are high. The booze is flowing. War is coming. Inspired by one of the literary world’s most famous scandals, Steven Carl McCasland’s LITTLE WARS features Lillian Hellman, Dorothy Parker, Gertrude Stein, Agatha Christie, Alice B. Toklas and Muriel Gardiner having the best what-if dinner party imaginable. Together they’ll drink, scoff and face their demons. Everyone has a confession. Someone has a secret.
“Have you ever dreamed of attending one of Gertrude Stein’s infamous salons?… Little Wars…is about as close as you can get. I can’t recall the last time I saw so many incredible personalities portrayed on stage, let alone in a cast entirely of women.” – After Ellen

Pygmalion goes awry in this contemporary comedy of manners, which explores sexual harassment, misplaced amour, and the possibility of a four-sided love triangle. The combatants are a sexy, volatile young woman and three Back Bay types: a writer, a lawyer, and a fiancée in sensible shoes. The setting is Boston…

“Not Dead Yet”
Written by Andrew Peterson • Directed by Robert A Zimmerman
Join us in witnessing the disastrously unsuccessful efforts of a buffoonish, egocentric director to stage a murder-mystery play at the Brumder Mansion. It is quirky, dark and absurd. We’d tell you ahead of time the name of the famous director who’s coming to The Brumder Mansion – but we’d have to kill you. Trust us – you’ve heard of him. You’ve stood in line to see his movies. You’ve seen them on Netflix… Some of you have probably even pirated them on the torrents (don’t worry – we won’t tell). And now he’s coming here. To Milwaukee. To take you behind the scenes of his next artistic sensation: Not Dead Yet. Don’t miss it.
