We’ll be celebrating 800 years of political style in freedom here at Shaw’s Corner – as is only appropriate at the home of George Bernard Shaw, one of the world’s greatest voices for equality and liberty. What better day to explore the stunning gardens, now preserved by the National Trust for ever, for everyone.
Take tea on the lawn, and wander freely through the flowerbeds. Sit under the apple trees and discuss society, human rights, ethics, and even, just possibly, the theatre.
The highlight of the day will be a staged reading of Shaw’s brilliant political masterpiece “On The Rocks”, written originally in the 1930s, but more insightful and relevant than ever in 2015. Directed by Lorenzo Smith Mason – an emerging Shavian director whose recent credits include “The Apple Cart” at KDC Theatre and “How He Lied to Her Husband” at the Park Theatre, Finsbury Park”
