Washington Stage Guild Extends Shaw's WIVES & WITS thru 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.
