Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW starts the season with THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE - George Bernard Shaw's famous comedy set against the unlikely backdrop of the American Revolution, using fictional and historical characters - on Monday, September 24 at 7pm at The Players Club (16 Gramercy Park South) in Manhattan. David Staller produces and directs.
Now in its seventh sold-out year, Gingold Theatrical Group's PROJECT SHAW made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present every play (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches) written by George Bernard Shaw.
In THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE, some of Shaw's most entertainingly iconographic characters fill out this story of revolt: of one country against another as well as of the inexhaustible battle of the human spirit - how we choose to create and define ourselves in the face of societal expectations. The play is set in a 1777 New Hampshire village where Dick Dudgeon and Anthony Andrews both open their hearts to life. THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE, written in 1896, finally established Shaw as a playwright of the first order.
The cast of THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE features Jeremy Bobb (HARRISON, TX: THREE PLAYS BY Horton Foote), Janie Brookshire (MAN AND SUPERMAN), Sidney J. Burgoyne, Richard Easton (THE COAST OF UTOPIA, THE INVENTION OF LOVE), Joy Franz (INTO THE WOODS), Victoria Haynes, Warren Kelley (ENGAGING SHAW), Marc Kudisch (9 TO 5, THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE), William McCauley, James Prendergast, Ben Rauch, and Ted Schneider.
David Staller produces and directs all of the PROJECT SHAW readings.
