2018 Season

Project Shaw was created to bring our emotional selves to the intellectual table of Shaw’s humanist precepts. Presenting his plays along with plays of those who share his vital humanitarian views ties effortlessly into the timeless theme of challenging societal dictums and empowering the voice of the individual–while being incredibly entertaining! The artist is the voice of any society. Silence the artist and you silence the people. So join us as we race forward into 2018 with ‘The Power of Persistence: A Theatrical Survival Guide’. We’ll share some of our favorite Shaw plays along with some fantastic plays new to our audience. We look forward to sharing these comedies with you!
