Synopsis: "Alice in Black and White" brings a true American legend to her rightful place in history. The play tells the story of the first female photo-journalist, Alice Austen, from the late 1800s until a year before her death in 1952. During a time when social conventions for women demanded marriage and child rearing, Alice pursued her passion for photography, found love with life partner Gertrude Tate, and struggled mightily through the Great Depression as her family lost everything. Interwoven with Alice's story is the search of publisher Oliver Jensen for Alice and her photographs in 1951.

Cast Size: 5 Females, 2-3 Males (with doubling)
