Project Shaw Presents “Heartbreak House”

Get your tickets now! On August 28, Project Shaw begins performances of Shaw’s “Heartbreak House,” under the direction of David Staller. The Project’s website begins its description thusly: ‘In this new adaptation of Shaw’s infamous WWI play, it’s the first days of the London Blitz of September 1940. With the performance interrupted, the cast and audience have joined together to seek shelter in the theatre’s basement. To entertain the crowd, the cast performs Shaw’s most vital paean to resistance and perseverance against tyranny, “Heartbreak House.” Inspired by actual events as lived by Hermione Gingold during WWII’s darkest days, this revelatory approach will make [the play] more timely than ever.’
