Motley's new production is a collection of three short pieces by George Bernard Shaw. The centrepiece is 'Village Wooing'his comediettina 'for two voices in three scenes' preceded by the one-act play 'How he lied to her Husband' and a longish poem, 'English pronounciation' which deals with the peculiarities of spoken English, (one of his favourite themes) while the two short plays are affectionate satires on the processes of wooing and wedding, and their aftermath. Mr. Shaw's rapier-sharp wit and his unique take on these human rights-of-passage make for a stimulating, sparkling evening's entertainment.
