About this event


		Village Wooing image

Village Wooing written by Bernard Shaw in 1933 is one of his most charming short plays: an anti-romantic Shavian romance. The characters are simply named "A" and "Z" and the heroine is based on Shaw's local postmistress Jisbella Lyth in Ayot-St-Lawrence.

"The "romance" of the marriage of "A" and "Z" reveals consummation, not as mere sensual gratification of the senses, but as a mystic rite of sublimation, in the discovery of life's aesthetic magic and wonder. " Archibald Henderson, American Professor (1877-1963)

Produced by Shaw 2020

"It's wonderful to see Shaw's plays being kept alive, and to such a high standard by SHAW_2020. Long may they continue." Dame Judi Dench

"SHAW2020: Their mission -to bring Shaw's works to a wider more diverse audience is ground-breaking and important." Dr Bonnie Greer OBE

"My heart always lifts when I’m off to see a Shaw play. A company of Shaw actors who know what they are doing and saying is marvellous." Sir Ian McKellen
