A CHEKHOV-SHAW COMEDY NIGHT
Monday, September 21, 2015
Project Shaw will bring you Chekhov for this first time in this series. We will be presenting the world premiere of new adaptations of two of the Russian master's short but potent comedies. Along with Ibsen, Chekhov was the man responsible for inspiring Shaw to write plays in the first place! Joining these two delightful pieces will be one short Shaw play about the press and women's rights!
We'll be bringing you three plays!
From Chekhov, two short comedies:
A brief play by Chekhov in which an actor finally takes a sobering look his life after he has just given his final performance. With a new translation!
Vasili Svietlovidoff … Mr. George S. Irving
Nikita Ivanitch … Mr. John Cariani
ATRAGEDIAN IN SPITE OF HIMSELF
Chekhov’s comedic take on the roles we allow ourselves to undertake in life. With a new translation!
Ivan Ivanovitch Tolkachov … Mr. John Cariani
Alexey Alexeyevitch Murashkin … Mr. Christopher Innvar
With a thrilling short Shaw:
Shaw’s short comedy about the struggle for Women’s rights and the ever-present power of the press. Two dynamic women hold a top-level General captive… but losing his heart is the one thing he never expected.
General Mitchener … Mr. Fritz Weaver
Prime Minister Balsquith … Mr. Christopher Innvar
The Orderly … Mr. John Cariani
Mrs. Farrell … Ms. Jackie Hoffman
Mrs. Banger … Ms. Cynthia Harris
Lady Corinthia Fanshawe … Ms. Christine Pedi
Narrator … Ms. Diane Stilwell Weinberg
This is going to be a spectacular evening!
We look foward to seeing you there!
