Whitehead & Irving Star in Shaw Project Double Bill, May 8

A double bill of one acts will be presented on May 8th as the latest presentation of the Shaw Project series.  Overruled and Augustus Does His Bit will feature Charlotte Moore, Kathleen Widdoes, Paxton Whitehead and series regular George S. Irving.

The Shaw Project
--which aims to encompass all plays (long and short) by the legendary Irish playwright--is captained by Staller (Mrs. Warren's Profession at the Irish Rep), who will produce and direct the following currently-scheduled plays: Getting Married on June 19th, John Bull's Other Island on July 17th, The Apple Cart on September 18th, Misalliance on October 23rd, Captain Brassbound's Conversion on November 20th and The Philanderer on December 18th (with more to be announced).

"The Irish born Shaw, who died at age 94 in 1950, is one of the most prolific writers of plays, books and treatises in the English language. His unyielding stand for human rights, particularly for women's rights, has become legendary. He encouraged general political awareness and the need for people to take responsibility for their own lives," according to press notes.

Overruled and Augustus Does His Bit will be presented at noon (rather thanat 7 PM, as the other Shaw Project readings have been and will be).  For reservations, call The Players Club at 212-475-6116. For more information, visit www.theshawproject.com.
