by George Bernard Shaw
directed by Georgia Athearn

Raina hides a fleeing soldier, who shows her that war is not the romantic adventure that society believes it is. This witty comedy was one of Shaw’s first commercial and literary successes. When called on stage after the first performance, amidst the cheers, one audience member booed. Shaw replied, in characteristic fashion, “My dear fellow, I quite agree with you, but what are we two against so many?”
