In 2014, the Washington Stage Guild set out on a ambitious multiyear quest to produce George Bernard Shaw's five-part 1922 play cycle, Back to Methuselah. And as their 30th anniversary season comes to a climax, so does their monumental undertaking. One of the very first works of science fiction-fantasy ever to appear in a theater, these rarely-seen plays by the Nobel Prize-winning satirist (Pygmalion, Major Barbara, Saint Joan), start with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and conclude here in the year 31,920 AD, as mankind has evolved towards immortality. As Far as Thought Can Reach posits a world where a group of youngsters learn some lessons of life -- and the afterlife -- from the "Ancients." Catch up on the entire Methuselah Project at DC's Undercroft Theatre, with a series of readings and related events.
