LFL presents World Premiere Play
as part of Women's History Month:
Strong-willed photographer Alice Austen
takes on the Victorian World!

Alice Austen fell in love with photography and another woman at a time when women were expected to do neither. Marking LFL’s annual Women’s History Month production is a world premiere, Alice in Black and White, by award-winning published New York-based playwright Robin Rice. Ms. Rice has been fascinated by the photographic work and life of Alice Austen for several years and, in this humorous and heartbreaking exploration of Alice, she creates a period-hopping story that embraces both love and mystery. “I’ve seen Lilith’s work in both Louisville and New York City, and am so excited to have the world premiere of Alice in their hands”, she says. This stunning play won the StageWrite Women's Theatre Initiative Award. Ms. Rice will be in Louisville for the world premiere and will participate in scheduled talkbacks with the audience.
