About This Show

Life in the eccentric household of mad Captain Shotover teeters precariously upon the edge of disaster in George Bernard Shaw’s Heartbreak House. Romance springs ever eternal but never mutual, and the only stable marriages have the least to do with love. Written during World War I, but withheld by the playwright until after the hostilities ended, the play is a scathing indictment of a world that spawned destruction. To many aficionados, it’s Shaw at the top of his game.

There are additional performances on Tuesday February 11 & 18 and March 25 at 7pm. There is no Wednesday performance on April 2. There are no Thursday performances on March 27 or April 3. There are no Saturday matinees on March 1, 8, 15, 22, and April 5. There is an additional Sunday evening performance on February 16 at 7pm.
