WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Seattle Repertory Theatre presents George Bernard Shaw's witty comedy Misalliance, directed by the Rep's Artistic Director, Sharon Ott. A giddy clash of generations, filled with romantic liaisons and hilarious physical comedy, the play is Shaw's exploration of family dynamics at the turn of the century. Hypatia Tarleton, daughter of underwear magnate John Tarleton, feels stuck in her comfortable-but-predictable upper-class life. Nothing interesting ever happens to her, and she's bored to desperation by the constant chatter of those around her. Observes her father, "She's not satisfied. Restless. Wants things to happen. Wants adventures to drop out of the sky." Suddenly, that's just what happens, literally. Misalliance is a clever, fast-moving, thought-provoking, and delightful play about class, gender, age, race, imperialism, and the human obsession with sex. Opening night is Monday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m. There is an additional Wednesday matinee on October 29 at 2:00 p.m.
