Building the Wall ART
The Oasis Theatre Company, a New York-based theater company, will present Marriage by the Masters,
a delightful evening of one-act plays on the complex subject of love and marriage by the inimitable
playwrights, Shaw, Chekhov and Molière.
Under the leadership of Producing Artistic Director Brenda Lynn Bynum and Managing Director James Jenner, The Oasis Theatre Company has done more than 125 plays ranging from Shakespeare, Molière, Chekhov, Shaw, Shepard, Mamet, and Tennessee Williams as well as a film based on Ring Lardner’s “The Haircut,” videos documenting Mayan civilization and Mayan elders’ teachings, conducting acting and vocal workshops and classes, and providing other community educational services. This is our inaugural production in Santa Fe and we are thrilled to be presenting at The Adobe Rose Theatre. MARRIAGE BY THE MASTERS is comprised of three one-act plays by great playwrights of the Western hemisphere. How He Lied to Her Husband by G.B. Shaw, A Marriage Proposal by Anton Chekhov and The Forced Marriage by Molière.. How He Lied to Her Husband* – He writes her love poems, She enjoys it immensely . . . until they go missing from her workbox. This drawing-room comedy, devised and sculpted by G.B. Shaw, is based on one of his true life experiences.
In A Marriage Proposal, Lomov, a lifelong neighbor, comes to ask for Natalyia’s hand in marriage, and she hasn’t a clue. The comical miscues reach a farcical climax that only Chekhov could craft from his fertile imagination. Moliere’s The Forced Marriage* (translated by Albert Bermel) presents Sganarelle, a “middle-aged” bachelor, with designs for marrying an alluring mademoiselle who happens to have a stratagem of her own.

At any historical or current time, any place, any country. So, write something.
Tell us how you feel – through farce, comedy, tragedy, and everything in between. Challenge us with unexpected events, places, characters, and points of view that illuminate this defining and divisive moment in American history.
