WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
In Press Cuttings, it's 1909 and the men in charge of England are having a wild time trying to adjust to the Women's Rights movement! Press Cuttings, George Bernard Shaw's "suffragette comedy," involves a prime minister in drag (Tim Jerome), a conservative general out of control (Paxton Whitehead), a rebellious orderly (A.J. Shively), and some very determined women (Christine Pedi, Andréa Burns, Cady Huffman).
In Shaw's 1910 comedy Dark Lady of the Sonnets, Shakespeare (Shively again) has a secret rendezvous with Queen Elizabeth (Burns), who may or may not be one of his inspirations for some of his most treasured sonnets.
