FANNY'S FIRST PLAY, which features a play within a play, is a satire of theater critics, whose characters were based upon Shaw's own detractors. Originally, Shaw had the play produced without letting anyone know who actually wrote it. It caused a sensation. Ironically, this rarely seen 1911 play was Shaw's first real commercial success. The plot involves the daughter of a man who refuses to live in the present. She writes an incendiary play, anonymously,
and invites a group of critics to review it.
Waiting list begins at The Players on Monday at 5:30!
$25 ~ 212.352.3101 or www.projectshaw.com
THESE PERFORMANCES ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
(Yes! The Players is air-conditioned!)
George Bernard Shaw opened July 26, 1856 - went on tour November 2, 1950)
Born in Dublin. His first success was as a music and literary critic, but he was drawn to drama. He decided to write plays. He was fiercely proud of being a free-thinking humanist. He and Al Gore are the only people to have been awarded both a Nobel Prize and an Oscar: (Nobel in 1925 for his contribution to literature, an Oscar in 1938 for his PYGMALION screenplay). His dedication to the battle for Human Rights for all, and encouraging all people to forge an individual path in life while taking responsibility for these life choices has been our inspiration. Project Shaw is the first group ever to present every play ever written by Shaw. Join us in our unprecedented sixth year.
THE PLAYERS -- Project Shaw performs at New York's most legendary private club, The Players. Located at 16 Gramercy Park South, (which is the equivalent of 20th St east of Park Avenue). In 1888, Edwin Booth, America's pre-eminent Shakespearean actor, and 15 other incorporators, including Mark Twain and General William Tecumseh Sherman, founded The Players. Modeled after London's famed theatrical club, The Garrick. The Players was the first American club of its kind. The club boasts portraits by, among others, John Singer Sargent, as well as unique theatrical memorabilia. For more information about the club click on the link below, or phone 212-475-6116. (do not phone The Players for tickets.)
