Alexander Bar 18 – 30 June 2018 at 7 pm GERTRUDE STEIN AND A COMPANION by Win Wells. Directed by Chris Weir / With Shirley Johnston as Gertrude Stein and Lynita Crofford as Alice B Toklas. Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French. SAMUEL FRENCH LTD This evocative and witty play explores the extraordinary relationship between American modernist author and poet Gertrude Stein and lifelong partner Alice B. Toklas who rejected the conservative values of middleclass America in the early nineteen hundreds and found refuge in the bohemian decadence of Paris… and in each other. Stein drew artistic genius to her salon like a magnet, numbering among her close friends Hemingway, Picasso, Matisse, Cezanne, Klee and Scott Fitzgerald among other artists, writers and poets. They regularly gathered at what became known as the ‘Mecca for the modern-minded’ where they inspired each other to create art, drank often, fought often, fell in and out of love… and occasionally indulged in Alice’s hash brownies. The mystique of the ‘lost generation’ in Paris, a term coined by Stein, serves as a colourful backdrop to a tender and unconventional love story which Wells has woven into an absorbing theatre piece. At the Alexander Bar, Strand Street
