Village Wooing, according to press notes, "is set on a luxury pleasure cruise in 1933. In this charming one-act, two determinately single people meet and connect in spite of themselves." The upcoming Project Shaw will also feature the short play Interlude at the Playhouse, which "takes place on the first night of a lavish new theatre. Its owner/manager is scheduled to give a noble speech and is a nervous wreck, so it is up to his wife to attempt to save the day."
The current season will continue July 19 with Man and Superman, Sept. 27 with Candida, Oct. 25 with Cap't Brassbound's Conversion, Nov. 22 with How He Lied to Her Husband and Dec. 20 with Heartbreak House.
The Project Shaw series is produced and directed by Staller, who acted with Dana Ivey in Shaw's Mrs. Warren's Profession at the Irish Repertory Theatre. The series intends to offer every sketch, full-length and one-act play by the late playwright.
Past participants include Blair Brown, Mark Kudisch, Kerry Butler, Tyne Daly, Jonathan Hadary, Daniel Jenkins, Rebecca Luker, Michael Cerveris, Karen Ziemba, Michele Pawk, Bruce Vilanch, Jack Gilpin and George S. Irving.
