Gertrude and Alice (print)

Visiting the audience in the present day, Gertrude and Alice come to find out how history has treated them. The couple recounts stories of their forty-year relationship; of meetings with iconic artists and writers; and of Alice’s overwhelming, consuming devotion to Gertrude’s genius. Before they leave, they want to find out what has become of their artistic and cultural influence, and how their lives and work are—or are not—remembered.

“Talent is talent is talent is talent, to echo Gertrude Stein’s well-known statement about a rose. You’ll find plenty of it, along with humour, satire and affection, in the Independent Aunties’ take on the lives and work of perhaps the best-known lesbian couple of the early 20th century, writer/thinker Gertrude Stein and her devoted partner, Alice B. Toklas.” —Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine
