A 90-minute evening of three one-act plays
by George Bernard Shaw
Bonnie J. Monte, STNJ’s artistic director and the director of Shaw! Shaw! Shaw! has put three of George Bernard Shaw’s most delightful one-act plays together in an artful way to create a Shavian evening that will lift the COVID blues and transport you back in time to witness woes no greater than those caused by wooing, flirting, and outrageous passion.
Village Wooing, probably the most well-known of this trio of one-acts, follows the tale of two young people who meet on the deck of an ocean liner, and then “find” each other many months later in a small English village.
Passion, Poison, and Petrifaction or The Fatal Gazogene is a wildly funny, preposterous, and highly implausible tale of a doomed bohemian love triangle.
Overruled follows the fanciful and somewhat risqué flirtations of two couples as they rendezvous and collide in a fancy seaside resort in early 1900s England.
