Village Wooing - Shaw Festival Theatre

How two imperfect strangers make the perfect couple.
Royal George Theatre
June 8 - October 7

Explore the play


On a cruise ship, an anti-social writer (‘A’) becomes acquainted, quite unwillingly, with a sparky young woman (‘Z’). The two of them have nothing in common: not their class, not their experience, not their outlook. So of course it is a love story. With six actors for two parts, the casting of A and Z will be as unpredictable as love itself.

Recommended for Grade 9+ | Age 14+
