Radio play: "The Dark Lady of the Sonnets," by George Bernard Shaw

Sep 26, 2014

Maplewood Barn is celebrating William Shakespeare. His 450th birthday was this year, and this episode of Maplewood Barn Radio Theatre is in his honor. 

In this performance, we bring you George Bernad Shaw's "The Dark Lady of the Sonnets," a Shakespearian parody. Shaw wrote it in 1910 to encourage the English royal house to build a national theatre, where his plays could be performed. You will find Shaw's plea embedded in the heart of this delightful little story.
