By George Bernard Shaw

September 7 – October 21, 2018

(Previews September 7-September 15)




"It is probably the wittiest play he ever wrote, the most flawless technically, and in spite of being a very light comedy, the most telling." 

                               -George Orwell


George Bernard Shaw makes his City Lit debut, staged by the director of this past season’s hit J.B.  Captain Bluntschli, a mercenary soldier who is fonder of chocolates than of bullets, hides in the bedroom of heiress Raina Petkoff while escaping from battle—a development that disturbs her fiancé, Major Sergius Saranoff, a swaggering cavalry officer from the other side.  Raina calls Bluntschli “my chocolate cream soldier.”  Shaw calls Arms and the Man “an anti-romantic comedy.”  We call it the funniest play ever written about the Serbo-Bulgarian War.

Directed by Brian Pastor.
