VILLAGE WOOING – A Comedietta for Two Voices – is an anti-romantic battle of the sexes comedy by George Bernard Shaw.
It is a charming two-hander in which the characters, simply named ‘A’ and ‘Z’, play a relentless game of cat and mouse across land and sea.
“I am a woman and you are a man, with a slight difference that doesn’t matter except on special occasions.”

“Congratulations to the Village Wooing team for the nomination and win, a play I have fond memories of performing in 1979. It’s wonderful to see SHAW2020’s work continue to thrive as shown by this industry recognition. I wish their production continued success.”
