By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Mark Lococo
Drawing room comedy in the hands of radical Shaw makes a volatile mix. The mismatch of this delicious 1909 comedy is a decidedly odd couple: lusty Hypatia-the daughter of a free-thinking, philandering father who made a bundle in the underwear business-and her fiancé, a brainy aristocrat. Convention clashes with innovation, parents with children, and a gun-toting socialist is loose on the grounds. Enter, with a crash, a dashing aviator and a mysterious Polish acrobat in that most modern marvel, an aeroplane. Who will wind up with whom in this comedy of money, morality, and stuck-up manners?
