About This Show

“One of the few great farces of the English language” returns to the Guthrie stage for the first time in a generation. And for those who agree with the critic who said “there doesn’t seem to be anybody around today who can give us as much fun as old Shaw,” MISALLIANCE is an event not to be missed.

In one whirling merry-go-round of a comedy, Shaw uses his legendary wit to dissect powerful industrialists, the declining aristocracy, poor child-rearing, socialism, and even feminism.

With his outlandish cast of characters, Shaw weaves a riotous kaleidoscope of comedy that led the author himself to humbly proclaim it “one of my masterpieces.” Come see why.
