Show details

Synopsis


We have no more right to consume happiness without producing it than to consume wealth without producing it.


Eugene believes in love, free-thinking and liberation: James in social justice for all and conventional married life for himself.


Candida believes in her own strength and her right to run her life as she wants.


A young man with the soul of a poet clashes with a popular Socialist preacher and threatens his domestic happiness.


Only Candida can decide who is the stronger - and who's to be the winner.


A passionate power struggle is played out in one of Shaw's most enduring and witty plays.


Do you think that the things people make fools of themselves about are any less real and true than the things they behave sensibly about?


They are more true: they are the only things that are true.
