About this show

George Bernard Shaw's Misalliance takes place one summer afternoon in the conservatory of a large country house in Surrey, England. Hypatia, the daughter of a newly-monied father who made a bundle in the underwear business, is fed up with the stuffy conventions that surround her and with the hyperactive talk of her freethinking, philandering father. When a dashing aviator enters the scene - literally with a crash - Shaw complicates the question of who will wind up with whom in this hilarious examination of marriage, socialism, and the "new woman" struggling to emerge from the constraints of Victorian parenthood and morality. Renowned director/adapter/translator Stephen Wadsworth directs.
