George Bernard Shaw's magnum opus, Back to Methuselah, is a comedic look at the history of humanity, from the Garden of Eden to 30,000 years into the future. One of the first works of science fiction ever put on stage, this monumental cycle of plays is rarely performed due to its size. In anticipation of the Washington Stage Guild's 30th anniversary, the company is mounting a multi-year cycle of each of the plays. This first production stages two chapters, In the Beginning, which takes place in the Garden, where Adam and Eve choose between mortality and immortality, and The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas, a present-day tale in which two brothers discuss the need to increase the human lifespan if civilizations are to function. Sparkling with Shaw's trademark wit and satirical touch, this fantastical examination of humanity's failings is as vital as ever. Learn More
