      Project Shaw - The Torch Bearers

      Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theatre

      Gingold Theatrical's 2020 PROJECT SHAW: SEEING CLEARLY THROUGH ART, presents plays by both George Bernard Shaw and those who share his bold belief in human rights and free speech for all. It's our theatrical "art as activism" that drives all GTG programming. All PROJECT SHAW events are followed by a lively talk-back.

      The Torch Bearers by George Kelly, 1923. It’s amateur theatricals at it’s zaniest in a small Midwest town. Written by Grace Kelly’s celebrated uncle! The plot: Frederick Ritter returns home from a business trip to find his living room being prepared for a rehearsal of a play by the local community theater group with his wife, who has never set foot on any stage, plunged into the leading role after the original lead's husband inconsiderately dropped dead at the eleventh hour of its first performance. Led by one of the theatre’s most outlandish creations, the leader of the amateur troupe, Mrs. Pampinelli, the cast is determined to do the best they can. At last it is the night of the performance where disaster piles upon disaster. But Mrs. Pampinelli leads her bungling troupe through the nonstop mishaps to a miraculously triumphant end. Surely one of the prime inspirations for later theatrical escapades like NOISES OFF, you won’t want to miss this outlandishly hysterical paean to the Theatre.

      Cost: 40.00
