George Bernard Shaw's Widowers' Houses Opens
The TACT and Gingold Theatrical Group coproduction of George Bernard Shaw's Widowers' Houses celebrated its opening night on March 13 at the Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row. The limited run continues through April 2.
In Shaw’s debut play, written during his time as an arts journalist in response to a dare by a fellow critic, a young man discovers an unsavory truth about his family-to-be, and is faced with choosing between his love and his ideals.
Widowers' Houses features Jeremy Beck as Dr. Harry Trench, Jonathan Hadley as William De Burgh Cokane, Hanna Cheek as Waitress and Annie, Terry Layman as Sartorius, Talene Monahon as Blanche Sartorius, and John Plumpis as Lickcheese.
The production features scenic design by Brian Prather, lighting design by Peter West, costume design by Barbara A. Bell, sound design by Toby Jaguar Algya, and prop design by Lytza Colon. David Staller directs.
