Gingold Theatrical Group’s Project Shaw: your monthly guide to reason.
Heartbreak House by Bernard Shaw
Heartbreak House, one of Shaw most admired of curious comedies, is packed full of extraordinary roles. Each member of the cast gets to take a bite out of this rarely produced and provocative piece. Set just before WWI, the action of the play takes place in and around the Shotover home, built like a ship on top of a hill on the English countryside. In the course of the play, everyone learns to face the future, however tumultuous it may be.
These script-in-hand all-star readings are always sold out.
Each month, Project Shaw brings you either one of Shaw’s scintillating plays or a play by those who inspired him. This is the acclaimed staged reading series that has been playing to sold-out crowds for eight years at downtown’s club, The Players, and has now moved uptown to New York’s legendary Symphony Space!
“Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable — and unique — service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw’s plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city.” — Jesse Green, New York Magazine.
