As Project Shaw continues to branch out to include playwrights who were instrumental in the formation of ‘Shaw the Playwright’, we bring you a short play by one of Shaw’s muses and one of the most important men of the theatre in the 20th century, Harley Granville-Barker. This charming play takes a loving look at the theatre, the choices we make, the dreams that obsess us, and the importance of moving on in life against all odds.
Two extremely differing points of view about what we love most: the Theatre!
