VILLAGE WOOING by Bernard Shaw
In this charming play, two people determined to remain single meet on an around-the-world cruise. This chance encounter changes their lives in the most unexpected ways! Written by Bernard Shaw in 1933 while he was, himself, taking his first world cruise.
The season continues on December 13th (7pm) with Village Wooing, George Bernard Shaw’s sparkling short romantic comedy. Village Wooing is the perfect antidote to the holiday blues.
