Shaw Festival Announces 2015 Season; Includes Sweety Charity, Peter and the Starcatcher, Pygmalion and more!

The Shaw Festival today announced the 2015 season playbill. The Shaw's 54th season features 11 productions including the re-envisioning of two enduring Shaw comedies and two newly commissioned Canadian works.

The 2015 season will feature Sweet Charity, Pygmalion, Light Up the Sky, Peter and the Starcatcher, You Never Can Tell, The Divine, The Lady from the Sea, Top Girls, The Twelve- Pound Look, The Intelligent Homosexual's Guide to Socialism and Capitalism with a Key to the Scriptures (IHO) and The Next Whisky Bar - A Kurt Weill Cabaret.

Commenting on the 2015 season, Artistic Director Jackie Maxwell said:"I am very excited by the mix of classic and contemporary plays in our 2015 season. Lauded Canadian playwrights Michel Marc Bouchard and Erin Shields will be presenting pieces from and about our original mandate, commissioned and developed here at The Shaw that will sit alongside new interpretations of work by Shaw, Moss Hart and J.M. Barrie, while Caryl Churchill and Tony Kushner will reflect the contemporary world through their own Shavian lens. Add a glorious musical from the '60s, a delirious family comedy and a newly conceived cabaret and it is clear that our plays will be speaking to each other across decades, styles and geographies providing a diverse continuum from Shaw to today."
