Washington Stage Guild Extends Shaw's WIVES & WITS thru May 27

WIVES & WITS, OVERRULED & VILLAGE WOOING by George Bernard Shaw has been extended at Washington Stage Guild through May 27.

The Washington Stage Guild Silver Season concludes with a pair of one-acts from either end of the long career of the Stage Guild’s “playwright in residence” – George Bernard Shaw. Wives & Wits is in its Washington area professional premiere of GBS’ stereoscopic look at sex, the irresistible force. The two plays, comedies of love and marriage, are among Shaw's most entertaining works, and this is a rare opportunity for Washington audiences to see them performed. Starting the evening is 1913’s Overruled, directed by Alan Wade, and rounding it out is a play from Shaw's late career, Village Wooing, directed by Laura Giannarelli. Village Wooing premiered in 1933 and is described as a “Comedietta for two voices.”

Featuring Michael Glenn, Rana Kay, Nick Depinto, and Dawn Thomas.

The show plays at the Undercroft Theatre of Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church, 900 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC. The Undercroft Theatre is located in the heart of downtown Washington, on the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and 9th Street, NW. It's steps from the Convention Center and within easy walking distance from Metro.

The show runs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. $40.00, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. $50.00, and Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. $40.00.
