About Shaw Vs. Tunney...

Shaw vs. Tunney concerns the deep and enduring relationship that developed between George Bernard Shaw, the celebrated Irish playwright, and Gene Tunney, the American world heavyweight boxing champion. Beginning with their first meeting in London in 1928 and culminating on an island in the Adriatic, where the Tunneys were honeymooning, this is the story of a profound friendship between a boxer and a man of books.

Join us for a staged reading and talk-back. Admission is free.
