THE PHILANDERER is a wickedly witty comedy. The play follows a day in the life of a roguish gentleman doing his best to avoid making a commitment to either of the two women who may or may not actually want him to. In The Philanderer,Shaw takes on most of the classic Shaw issues, questioning societal expectations, sex, relationships, sense of self, science, religion and politics.

“Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable — and unique — service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw’s plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city.” — Jesse Green, New York Magazine.
