All of GTG’s programming, inspired by the works of George Bernard Shaw, are designed to provoke peaceful discussion and activism.
“To complement our production of Shaw’s epic and rarely seen CANDIDA, we will bring you an international team of actors, directors, scholars, and historians to explore the distinctly Shavian issues addressed in this play and how they relate to our lives in the present.
