Staged Reading - Dear Liar

By Jerome Kilty

A Staged Reading

Directed by Vicki Siegel

Tuesday - February. 15th, 2011 - 8 p.m.


This epistolary drama features selections from correspondence between George Bernad Shaw and Mrs. Patrick Campbell, the great actress and muse, for whom he wrote the part of Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion, and with whom he had a 40-year unconsumated love affair.

Dear Liar is a natural fit with Heartbreak House, Shaw's brilliantly funny and profoundly sad dissection of England on the eve of WWI, a time that audiences are sure to find resonates with our own.  Our staged reading provides an additional opportunity for audiences to explore the mind and the times of Shaw, perhaps the second greatest playwright of the English language.
