'Gertrude Stein' to be performed Sept. 6 at Gettysburg College

GETTYSBURG, Pa. - The one-woman show, "Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, Gertrude Stein, " will be performed Sept. 6 at Gettysburg College.

"Gertrude Stein" will star Bonnie Gable, a 1967 Gettysburg College graduate, who has researched, developed and performed this play for more than two decades. The play is by Marty Martin and is set in Stein's legendary 1938 Paris apartment. The imaginary monologue depicts Stein's California childhood, her studies at Harvard University, her life in Paris with her brother Leo and her discovery of Alice B. Toklas. Stein reminisces candidly about the people they have entertained - Picasso, Isadora Duncan, Hemingway, the Fitzgeralds and other members of their artistic circle, referred to as "The Lost Generation."

The performance will take place at 7 p.m. in the Kline Theatre and is free and open to the public. A question-and-answer with Gable will follow. The Kline Theatre is in Brua Hall on the south end of Gettysburg College's campus, just off North Washington Street at Water Street. The play is presented by the college's Departments of English, Theatre Arts, Visual Arts, Women's Studies and Hillel. More information is available at 717-337-6060.
