WORLD OF GEORGE BERNARD

SHAW FESTIVAL

May 20-23.

 

Artistic Director Robert Scogin will introduce Shaw — including fascinating material from his letters – as he kickoffs the festival at 9:30, Monday, May 20. At 1:30 in the afternoon, a film of The Millionairess will be shown and discussed.

Tuesday morning will focus on Shaw as political gadfly with a look at  Major Barbara, while the afternoon session will shift to the  morality (or lack thereof) of Mrs. Warren’s Profession.)  

Wednesday morning, it’s Shaw vs. Shakespeare with actors from Shaw Chicago squaring off in a lively dramatic debate.   In the afternoon, romp through ancient history with Caesar and Cleopatra.

Thursday: the grand finale will feature Pygmalion in the morning and My Fair Lady in the afternoon.
