Dear Liar - Bucks County Playhouse | Thespie

Nobody knows quite what went on between playwright (and vegetarian) George Bernard Shaw and the celebrated, yet temperamental English stage actress, Mrs. Pat for whom he created Eliza Doolittle in Pygmalion. But for 40 years of their very public lives, these two titanic personalities of the British theatre carried on a very private affair through the exchange of letters. Full of stinging wit and deep emotion, Dear Liar brings their epistolary relationship to life — revealing not only the ups and downs of their storied careers, but also illustrating the very stormy infatuation and magnetism that pulled these spirits together even through separation, hardship and heartbreak. This special benefit reading of Jerome Kilty’s play will star 4-time Oscar nominee Marsha Mason and Emmy winner Brian Cox. All ticket proceeds will support the Bucks County Playhouse Pandemic Campaign.
