The symposium will convene for all registrants with a reception from
5:00 to 6:00 on Friday afternoon, July 25, at the Shaw Festival Theater for
a short welcome and social gathering (wine & cheese), allowing time for
participants to have dinner on their own after and then, if they choose,
attend a play that night (note that plays other than the two Shaw plays are
not covered by the symposium registration, so you have to purchase tickets
for them separately. See
below). Prior to the reception, from
4:00 to 5:00, there will be a business meeting of the International Shaw
Society in the Festival’s library, which all members are encouraged to
attend. Saturday, July 26, will be
occupied with speakers and discussions in the morning, followed by seeing Shaw’s Arms and the Man at 2:00 pm in the Royal George Theatre. On Sunday, July 27, there will be morning
sessions of speakers and discussions, with a picnic lunch on the Festival
patio around noon, followed by seeing Shaw’s The
Philanderer at 2:00 pm in the Festival Theatre. There will be at least one session (day
and time TBA) on staging Shaw with actors/directors/designers from the Shaw
Festival, with questions from members of the International Shaw Society. Extra plays could be booked on Friday,
Saturday, and Sunday evenings (see below for instructions on when and how
to do that). To see the Playbill

given at the 2014 Summer Shaw Symposium.
