Marriage by the Masters • An evening of classical one-acts

  • Adobe Rose Theatre (map)

Marriage by the Masters is a delightful evening of one-act plays on the complex subject of love and marriage by the inimitable playwrights Shaw, Chekhov, and Moliere.

How He Lied to Her Husband,* George Bernard Shaw
He writes to her love poems, She enjoys them immensely. And then . . . Her Husband finds out. This drawing-room comedy, devised and sculpted by G.B. Shaw, is based on one of his true life experiences.

A Marriage Proposal, Anton Chekov
Lomov, a lifelong neighbor, comes to ask for Natalia’s hand in marriage, and she hasn’t a clue. The comical miscues reach a farcical climax that only Chekhov could craft.

The Forced Marriage,* Molière (translated by Albert Bermel)
Sganarelle, a “middle-aged” bachelor, has designs for marrying an alluring mademoiselle who happens to have a stratagem of her own.

*These plays are presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
