WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
George Bernard Shaw's Heartbreak House explores those feelings which simmer just below the surface, but act as the lens through which we view our lives. The play is set in a Checkhovian country house just before WWI, the locus of a large dinner party thrown by a vainglorious host, and features a large cast of characters, each of them trying their level best to avoid the numerous elephants in the room - it's only a matter of time before collisionus pachydermus ensues - to comic, and tragic, effect. Written before World War I, Shaw said about the play, "It has more of the miracle, more of the mystic belief in it than any of my others."
