Shaw’s riotous comedy! Lady Cicely arrives in Morocco with Sir Howard, the infamous London Judge. We soon discover that their guide, Captain Brassbound, is none other than a legendary ruthless pirate who has been waiting for years to extract revenge on this very judge! Surrounded by a spectacular array of wonderfully theatrical characters, Lady Cicely takes on the pirates, an Arab army, and the entire U.S. fleet while finding time for a bit of romance!
Now celebrating its 12th year, Gingold Theatrical Group’s Project Shaw made history in December 2009 as the first company ever to present performances of every one of Shaw’s 65 plays (including full-length works, one-acts and sketches). They are now also including plays by writers who most inspired Shaw to begin his playwriting career, including work by Chekhov, Ibsen, Wilde, Barrie, and Harley Granville-Barker — while continuing its new play development and educational programs.
