Jim Brochu, Donna Lynne Champlin, Mara Davi, Sean Dugan, Josh Grisetti, Simon Jones, Victor Slezak, and Tom Viola will star in Project Shaw's reading of Why She Would Not, at the Players Club, on Monday, December 14 at 7pm. David Staller will direct the reading.

Unfinished at the time of his death in 1950, Why She Would Not will be presented with a newly written final scene by Israel Horovitz. Additionally, to honor Shaw's background as a theater critic turned playwright, Staller also commissioned journalists David Cote, Michael Feingold, Jeremy McCarter, and Robert Simonson to each write a new ending for the play. Each of these endings will also be presented, narrated by its author.

In Why She Would Not, a brash and ambitious young man, who happens to be unemployed, saves a woman from being robbed. She introduces him into her wildly successful family business and he eventually comes to run it. She will not however, consent to marry him.
