PYGMALION by George Bernard Shaw
A centennial production of Shaw's most beloved play, in its ORIGINAL version
Directed by Bill Largess
October 25 through November 18, 2012
One of GBS' most beloved comedies of manners, and one of the past century's most successful plays in any language, the story of Eliza Doolittle and her speech lessons from Professor Higgins debuted exactly 100 years ago in 1912. While known to many only in the form of its musical adaptation, My Fair Lady (playing this season at Arena Stage), the original play is sharper and more insightful, and this will be the Stage Guild's long-awaited take on this great work.
TRYST by Karoline Leach
The DC premiere of the Off-Broadway hit where profit and loss weigh heavily on the course of true love
Directed by Kasi Campbell
January 3 through January 27, 2013
When pursuing love, is loneliness or lucre a stronger force? Tryst, a play John Simon called “fascinating... absorbing, provocative” is a battle of wits between a homely spinster and the man who hopes to parlay his good looks into financial gain. Leach’s Edwardian cat-and-mouse game keeps the audience guessing until the final curtain.
INFERNO by Dante
A strikingly theatrical performance of a Hell of a story, last seen in DC over a decade ago
Directed by Laura Giannarelli
February 21 to March 17, 2013
Adapted and performed by Stage Guild Artistic Director Bill Largess, this one-man journey through the underworld (with a cast of thousands) was described by The Washington Post as “very cool.” Often requested since its 2001 debut, this revival will be a physical re-imagining of the original dramatization of one of the Western world's greatest texts. “Dante and Shakespeare divide the world between them; there is no third.”- T.S. Eliot
THE ELDER STATESMAN by T.S. Eliot
Eliot's final play (and the only one never presented by the Stage Guild) in its first Washington production
April 25 through May 19, 2013
The Stage Guild has produced every play by Eliot except this, his final one, the overwhelming winner in our audience poll this past Spring. An acclaimed and respected politician prepares to retire in the glow of fame, until a barely-remembered friend from his youth turns up with uncomfortable truths. Scandal and disgrace may await a man who expected honors and comfort. But does the end of a life of lies bring tragedy, or relief?
