A Shaw Sampler, with Ed Golden
Three comedies by George Bernard Shaw: Two full-length, “Pygmalion” and “Major Barbara”, and a one-act, “Don Juan in Hell". Widely acclaimed as second only to the works of Shakespeare among English language playwrights, the plays of G.B.S. continue in constant revival on stages around the world. Together let’s relish the splendid wit of this irreverent Irishman as he skewers foibles, hypocrisies, and wrong-headed thinking in language rarely equaled. It’s all there: politics, war, love, marriage, sex, the family, religion, class war and more transformed by this master into some of the most brilliant comedies ever written.
