Archives - Heartbreak House

by Bernard Shaw

Directed by Winifred Butler

Saturday 3rd – Saturday 10th December 1977 in the Auditorium

Shaw’s Chekhovian vision of post-first-world-war England. A witty foreboding of the destruction of civilisation through the decadence of the leisured class and the worship of false standards.

Captain Shotover’s two formidable daughters, their old nurse and a poor but beautiful young visitor manage to rout father, husband, lover, wealthy magnate and burglar, with sparkling Shavian repartee.
