About this show

Drawing room comedy in the hands of radical playwright George Bernard Shaw makes a volatile mix. The mismatch of his masterful comedy Misalliance is a decidedly odd couple: lusty Hypatia--the daughter of a new-money father who made a bundle in the underwear business-and her fiancé, the timid Bentley. She is a new woman for a new century, a free-thinker longing for a world not yet invented; he is a blue-blood stuck in the past. Enter, with a crash, a dashing aviator and a mysterious Polish adventuress in that most modern marvel, an aeroplane! Who will wind up with whom in this comedy of money, morality, and stuck-up manners?
