About “Gertrude Stein and a Companion” by Win Wells
The play begins just after the death of Gertrude Stein. Her ghost returns to Alice B. Toklas and the genesis and development of their relationship is richly portrayed. Author Win Wells has truly captured the feeling, art, music and literature of Paris of those years – between the world wars – when Pablo and Ernest and Henri and all of Gertrude’s friends spent their free time in the great writer’s salon.

This play flits back and forth in time featuring Gertrude and Alice, as well as a host of famous people who were part of their lives. Using text from Stein’s writings, letters and interviews, Wells is able to gradually reveal the inner workings of their relationship.
