WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bernard Shaw's first play, Widowers' Houses, was produced in 1892, and thus began his 50-year war against stale theatrical practice, humorless sentimentalism, all kinds of social injustice, hypocrisy, weak-mindedness, and moral lassitude. Now, how did he manage all that and at the same time become popular and wealthy beyond compare? All the answers live in this extraordinary--and rarely produced--opening volley: He set out to expose the collaboration of aristocracy and business against labor, and peopled his play with a pack of damaged specimens you can't help but be titillated to meet. J.R. Sullivan directs. Appropriate for audiences 12 and up. For subscriptions to the Pearl Theatre Company's 2004-2005 Season, click here.
