Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW, under the leadership of Artistic Director David Staller, continued its 11th Season with George Bernard Shaw's GENEVA. Written and first produced in 1938, Geneva is a wildly satirical political comedy. In it, a German Jew arrives in Geneva demanding a summit meeting designed to contain the increasingly dangerous behavior of three dictators, Herr Battler, Signor Bombardone, and General Flanco (parodies of Hitler, Mussolini and Franco). The three are brought before the International Criminal Court of the League of Nations to justify their atrocities.

Geneva featured Lauren Molina (Begonia Brown), Rory O'Malley (The Jew), James Ludwig (The Newcomer), Julie Halston (The Widow), Michael Riedel (The Journalist), James Prendergast(The Bishop), Tim Jerome (Commisar Posky), Marc Vietor (The Secretary), Paxton Whitehead(Sir Orpheus Midlander), Bill Army (The Betrothed), Jay O. Sanders (The Judge), Victor Slezak(Bombardone), Jack Gilpin (Battler), Andrew Weems (General Flanco), and Christine Pedi(Deaconess) and Ariel Estrada as The Narrator.

Now celebrating its 11th year, Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw's 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches). They are now also including plays by writers who most inspired Shaw to begin his playwriting career, including work by Chekhov, Ibsen, Wilde, Barrie and Harley Granville-Barker.

The 2016 Project Shaw Season continues with The Apple Cart (July 25), Harley Granville-Barker'sFarewell to the Theatre (September 19), On The Rocks (October 24), J.M. Barrie's Alice Sit-By-The-Fire (November 21), and Androcles and the Lion (December 19).
