Buoyant Billions, is one of Shaw's wittiest and least known plays. Written in 1948 towards the end of his very long life, he introduces some of his most entertainingly eccentric characters. The plot: after WWII, a rich young man decides to venture forth into the world and become a professional ‘world betterer.' Along the way he meets a rich young saxophone-playing heiress who treats him so dreadfully that he becomes fascinated by her...and her entire peculiar family. Shaw, as usual, reminds us to question everything and bravely form our own opinions about ourself and the world around us.

"Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable -- and unique -- service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw's plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city." -- Jesse Green, New York Magazine
Gingold Theatrical Group celebrates human rights with the work of George Bernard Shaw as their guide.
