Heartbreak House

By George Bernard Shaw

Directed by John Barrett

England 1918 - in a lovely country house, an intriguing assortment of beautiful, witty women flirt and dally with a bewildering - and bewildered - assortment of men, both gentlemen and ladies seemingly oblivious to “ The Great War ” raging just over the threshold. The elegance (and artificiality) of the Edwardian Age is breathing its last gasp, but here, in Heartbreak House, wit and whimsy still rule. George Bernard Shaw’s stunning masterwork brings to life a cornucopia of wondrous characters, some a little off-beat, some quite bizarre, but all delightful and all engaged in a grand unspoken conspiracy to shut out the rude realities of the larger world and live instead in a fanciful dreamworld of their own creation. It’s a world full of cleverness and charm, of artifice and masquerade, of bright humor and wicked satire - a dreamworld that cannot prevail against the coming cataclysm but lives brilliantly on stage for one last night of enchantment and, ultimately, enlightenment.
