Marriage by the Masters
MARRIAGE BY THE MASTERS is a delightful evening of one-act plays on the complex subject of love and marriage by the inimitable playwrights, Shaw, Chekhov and Molière.
The Oasis Theatre Company production of G.B. Shaw's How He Lied to Her Husband
G.B. Shaw could never be said that he lacked an opinion about anything.
How He Lied to Her Husband* – He writes her love poems, She enjoys it immensely . . . and Her Husband finds out. This drawing-room comedy, devised and sculpted by G.B. Shaw, is based on one of his true life experiences.
Watch our short video mood board that suggests the look and feel of our production of G.B. Shaw's How He Lied to Her Husband.
The Oasis Theatre Company's Production of Anton Chekhov's A Marriage Proposal
A quiet country doctor, Anton Chekhov had to write stories and novels in order to keep his family fed.
In A Marriage Proposal, Lomov, a lifelong neighbor, comes to ask for Natalia’s hand in marriage, and she hasn’t a clue. The comical miscues reach a farcical climax that only Chekhov could craft.
The Oasis Theatre Company's production of Molière's The Forced Marriage
An actor/manager, Molière was a master at capturing the mores of his society while examining universal issues.
In The Forced Marriage, Sganarelle, a middle-aged bachelor, has designs on an alluring mademoiselle. She has some ideas of her own.
