David Staller commented on the 2017 Season, saying: "WOMEN TAKE THE STAGE! We're celebrating 100 years of women's rights in New York with our 12th season of Project Shaw. Not only will we be offering some of Shaw's most iconographic strong women, we'll be bringing you plays examining the struggle for equal rights with two plays written by women in the early part of the 20th century, Elizabeth Robins and Rachel Crothers. As a bit of icing on the cake, we'll return to Oscar Wilde to end the season with his ground-breaking look at women challenging society. Guest directors to be announced shortly."

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--while continuing its new play development and educational programs.
Gingold Theatrical Group devotes its programming to works embracing human rights and free speech with the humanitarian vision of George Bernard Shaw as its guide.
The 2016 season continues on Nov. 23 with J.M. Barrie's Alice Sit-By-The-Fire, and on Dec. 21 with Shaw's Androcles and the Lion.
For those interested in lively off-site discourses, each Project Shaw event is followed by a talk-back with cast members. GTG's David Staller is also hosting a monthly Shaw Club discussion group. They meet the Wednesday before every Project Shaw event at 520 8th Avenue. Reservations required 212-355-7823 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
