Project Shaw: The Play's the Thing

Gingold Plays The Thing 111819


THE PLAY’S THE THING. In Ferenc Molnar's legendary farce, a young playwright is distraught when he overhears the actress he loves having an affair with another man. His mentor must convince him that she is only rehearsing a play — and that he must write her a better one. This rollicking comedy has spawned innumerable imitations on stage, screen, and TV. Even Tom Stoppard wrote his own translation of this jolly folly.
