The acclaimed production of Gingold Theatrical Group's Heartbreak House has only two weeks remaining in its limited Off-Broadway engagement at Theatre Row (410 West 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues), through September 29th only. The production will be filmed on September 28th to be preserved for posterity and added to the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.

There will be talkbacks following the Sunday matinee with cast and creative team. There will be a special Shaw Discussion on Monday October 1st at The Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) with Martin Meisel, the legendary Shaw scholar, moderating, along with several Shavians, including Professor Andrew M. Flescher, director Charlotte Moore, Professor Ellen Dolgin, GTG Artistic Director David Staller and cast members from Heartbreak House.
Inspired by the artistry and activism of George Bernard Shaw, the Gingold Theatrical Group creates theatre and theatre-related programs that promote Shaw's humanitarian ideals including universal human rights, the freedom of thought and speech, and the equality of all living beings. Programs include full Off-Broadway productions as part of the Shaw New York annual festival, the Project Shaw monthly reading series, outreach and education programs, as well as the cultivation of new plays through GTG's Speakers' Corner writers' group. All of GTG's programming is designed to inspire lively discussion and peaceful activism with issues related to human rights, the freedom of speech, and individual liberty. This was the purpose behind all of Shaw's work and why GTG chose him as the guide toward helping create a more tolerant and inclusive world through the exploration of the Arts.
Founded in 2006 by David Staller, GTG has carved a permanent niche for the work of George Bernard Shaw within the social and cultural life of New York City, and, through the Project Shaw reading series made history in 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). GTG brings together performers, critics, students, academics and the general public with the opportunity to explore and perform Shaw's work and to create new work based on the values that Shaw championed. Through performances, symposiums, educational programs, new play development, and outreach, GTG encourages all people to rejoice in the possibilities of the future.
