About this show

George Bernard Shaw makes his City Lit debut, staged by the director of this past season's hit J.B. Captain Bluntschli, a mercenary soldier who is fonder of chocolates than of bullets, hides in the bedroom of heiress Raina Petkoff while escaping from battle — a development that disturbs her fiancé, Major Sergius Saranoff, a swaggering cavalry officer from the other side. Raina calls Bluntschli "my chocolate cream soldier." Shaw calls Arms and the Man "an anti-romantic comedy." We call it the funniest play ever written about the Serbo-Bulgarian War.
