Back To Methuselah: In the Beginning & The Gospel of The Family Barnabas

Robert Sacheli
Performance Dates

A masterwork of gargantuan proportions, a cycle of plays rarely performed since its premiere in the 20s. Shaw examines the human life-span in a series of comic episodes that take us from the Garden of Eden to "as far as thought can reach" in the distant future. One of the first works of science fiction ever put on stage, with GBS' celebrated wit and a touch of satire. The first installment this season begins an ambitious, multi-year cycle of productions of Shaw's landmark in anticipation of our 30th anniversary.
