by George Bernard Shaw, directed by Eileen Schuyler

February 14, 15, 16, 2014 (Fri.-Sun.)
When an exhausted mercenary soldier from the Serbian army bursts through the window of an idealistic young woman and demands to hide out in her bedroom, all her cherished notions about the nobility of love and war get turned upside down. Set in the Serbo-Bulgarian War of 1885, Shaw’s classic comedy features a dashing military hero, an insolent and ambitious servant and a host of surprises. The play sparkles with Shaw’s characteristic wit, as the master takes aim at the folly of war and the hypocrisies of human nature.
