Running Time: Two hours and 30 minutes, with one intermission

The return of George Bernard Shaw’s Getting Married, last seen by a handful of our friends at the Bathhouse theatre in our first year. The impending nuptials of a young couple cause a tremendous ripple in the space-time continuum... that is, a Shavian debate on the subject of marriage. Everybody has an opinion, from the greengrocer to the psychic medium. A tremendously lively and largely unknown play.

Part of the series: Endangered Species Project

Endangered Species Project is an organization of distinguished Seattle theatre artists dedicated to presenting plays that seldom get full productions. While it is an essential duty of theatres to read and develop new work, there’s a parallel need to bring older neglected plays back to the stage. Through our simply staged readings, we lend live voices to plays that are now silent on our bookshelves.  

Founded in February of 2011, Endangered Species Project has consistently mounted monthly readings. Expanding from our core group of eleven, dozens of Seattle’s best and bravest actors have been instrumental in bringing new life to these plays. We strive to do nothing that gets between the audience and the play. We want to give full scope to those two most powerful forces in the theatre: a playwright’s ideas and the audience’s imagination.
