Project Shaw

Our monthly series, Project Shaw, presents lively script-in-hand performances of plays by Shaw as well as writers such as Henrik Ibsen, Oscar Wilde, Rachel Crothers, Elizabeth Robins, and Harley Granville-Barker, who either inspired Shaw or were inspired by him. These readings attract the country’s top-level actors who play to consistently sold-out houses. All plays read by Project Shaw reflect Shaw’s humanitarian passions. Project Shaw is presented at New York’s legendary Upper West Side Mecca for the arts, Symphony Space.

GTG’s writers’ lab, Speakers’ Corner, selects eight to ten writers of diverse backgrounds who spend the year exploring a specific Shaw play, and then writing new work in response to that play. Speakers’ Corner members are selected in August, and then meet monthly to share and respond to one another’s work. In the late spring or early summer, GTG holds public readings of the work generated through Speakers’ Corner, some of which may be selected for further development towards a future production. Before Speakers’ Corner, GTG developed new work through its Press Cuttings program, named after one of Shaw’s more inflammatory comedies. As Shaw began his career as a critic, GTG chose journalists with strong backgrounds in playwriting to create plays inspired by Shaw’s visionary humanitarianism. These writers were then supported by GTG through readings and developmental workshops.

Artists and performers

Surrounding our full productions, Shaw New York is an annual theatrical and community festival consisting of panels, lectures, debates and public discussions exploring themes from that season’s production. As Shaw was a critic and journalist turned playwright, the festival also features a Critic Symposium including several critics and journalists discussing the evolving role of criticism in today’s theatre.

Gingold Theatrical Group partners with faculty at a variety of educational institutions to develop curriculum around Shaw’s plays and ideals. Each GTG partnership is unique, and specifically designed to best serve the particular students in question. Below are examples of a few of our partnerships: Broome Street Academy, a tuition-free public charter high school, Regis High School, a tuition-free Catholic high school, and De La Salle Academy, New York City’s only private, independent school for academically talented, economically less advantaged boys and girls in grades six through eight.
