Bashville

  • About the Show

    Book by David William and Benny Green. Music by Denis King. Lyrics by Benny Green. Adapted from The Admirable Bashville by George Bernard Shaw "John Crocker, whose scripts have always been as traditional as turkey and Christmas pudding ... still ahead of the field with traditional fare ... These splendid scripts, all of which run under two hours, have enjoyed very successful professional productions at the Northcott, Exeter, and the Theatre Royal, Winchester." - Amateur Stage

    Synopsis

    This sparkling, witty, musical, adapted from an early Bernard Shaw play, was presented in the 1983 and 1984 seasons at the Open Air Theatre, Regent's Park, London, starring Peter Woodward as the prizefighting Shavian hero.

    "I found it charming, elegant, stylish and with a layer of wit to add to Shaw's own joke about Elizabethan playwright's as well as blank verse." - Daily Telegraph
