April 2021, West Allis, Wi – Village Playhouse is presenting An Evening With Shaw, a virtual production of three one act plays by Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw. The plays include “Overruled”, “Passion, Poison and Petrification” and “How He Lied To Her Husband”. The show will be available to view anytime between April 15 and April 25, 2021.

“Overruled” is a comedy of manners in which two couples find themselves in affairs, each husband with the other’s wife.  The cast includes Edward Grant and Sarah Jo Martens as Mr. and Mrs. Juno, with Derek Jacobs and Amy Wickland as Mr. and Mrs. Lunn.

“Passion, Poison and Petrification” is an over-the-top melodrama revolving around Lady Magnesia FitzTollemache (Antoinette Stikl), her husband Lord George (Paul Weir) and her admirer Adolphus (Evan Prier). Lady Fitztollemache wakes up just in time to save herself from being murdered by her jealous husband. Adolphus isn’t as lucky. Poisoned by Lord Fitztollemache, he soon finds himself stiffening into a living statue. Bob Stahley as The Landlord, Luis Castillo as The Constable and Bradley Skonecki as The Doctor round out the cast.

“How He Lied To Her Husband” centers on a series of poems written to Aurora Bumpas (Dawn Molly Dewane) by her lover, Henry (Clayton Mortl). When Aurora’s husband Teddy (Paul Weir) discovers the poems, Henry lies about their origin to avoid admitting the affair.

Tickets to view this production are on sale now. They are $15 per viewer, with a discount available for Village Playhouse members. Visit for more information.
