SHAW2020’s production of VILLAGE WOOING

a Comedietta for Two Voices,  written nearly 100 years ago by George Bernard Shaw, has won the London Pub Theatres Standing Ovation ‘Rediscovery’ Award.  

Maryann O’Brien (pictured above), who played ‘Z’ in the production at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden, was at the presentation ceremony at The Lion & Unicorn theatre on Sunday, 24th October, along with Joe Sargent who played ‘A’ and director Jonas Cemm, to collect the Award.  Sponsored by The Shaw Society, Village Wooing ‘powerfully evoked a sense of the era’ and was performed as part of the Camden Fringe Festival in August this year.

Of nearly three hundred events taking part in the Camden Fringe, the theatre press singled out Village Wooing for special mention with four- and five-star reviews.  It has also been nominated for an OffFest award by the prestigious ‘Offies’, the body which recognises the creativity of ‘OffWestEnd’ theatres and other venues.  

Jonas Cemm, Artistic Director of SHAW2020, thanked The Shaw Society for sponsoring the production in his acceptance speech:   ” I am over the moon that our post covid comeback has been so well received. The reviews were a huge boost but winning the Standing Ovations Award is the frosting on the cake of our success. We hope to take the show on the road in the spring of 2022″.
