About this show

Rosalind Productions presents George Bernard Shaw's Misalliance, directed by Elina de Santos will direct. In one of Shaw's most delightful plays, this farcical comedy of manners is about the mating game in turn-of-the-century England. Bentley, a smart but soppy Aristocrat, visits the Tartletons, a wealthy Bourgeois family, at their large home in the English countryside. Bentley is engaged to Hypatia, their spirited and restless daughter, who longs for adventure to drop out of the sky. On a fateful Saturday, sure enough, a dashing aviator crash lands on the Tartleton estate with Lina, a Polish acrobat and aviatrix; a vengeful gunman breaks in; and Bentley's father, a romantic Lord, arrives. Hypatia gets some ideas. Lina has a few of her own. Add Victorian, but naughty parents into the mix, and you've got one hilarious romp. By the end of the day, there are eight marriage proposals. Which are happy and which are misalliances?
