The Irish Repertory Theater is pleased to announce
the first production of the 2018-2019 Season!

DON JUAN IN HELL

By George Bernard Shaw
(Shaw was Irish!)

The staged reading of this play is actually the Third Act of Shaw’s Man and Superman and is often performed as a stand-alone production. It features entertaining and heady discussions of good vs. evil, desire vs. propriety, all told with Shaw’s razor-sharp wit. Characters include Don Juan, Lucifer, A Statue, and an amazing time-traveling woman.

Our partners in wit for this production will be Westminster Oaks, and the Maguire Center will be the scene of the clime (toasty!). The reading will be directed by Jeff Mandel, includes a cast of Lucas Dykes, David Guthrie, Ty Wold and Pat Carrico, and will be produced by Dennis Reilly.

The full-length version of Man and Superman was originally performed at the Royal Court Theater in London in 1905, and subsequent productions often did not include Don Juan. American audiences were lucky to have a Broadway staging in the 1950s that starred Charles Boyer as Don Juan, Charles Laughton as the Devil, Cedric Hardwicke as the Statue, and Agnes Moorehead as Doña Ana.

As always, residents of Westminster Oaks are FREE to come to any performance. IRT asks if a WO resident wants to be joined by friends or family outside the WO Community, please purchase tickets for them.
