"Misalliance" by George Bernard Shaw – August 5-30
George Bernard Shaw, known for his timeless plays such as Pygmalion, Man and Superman, and Candida, creates a beautiful chaos of class systems, gender differences, and other dividing issues that are still as relevant today as they were in the early 1900s. Taking place in a sprawling country estate, the play follows the “king of the undergarment industry” as he attempts to keep hold on a family teeming with ideologies. A play for the ages.
