Archives - Widowers’ Houses

by Bernard Shaw

Directed by Roy Brewer

Saturday 27th January – Saturday 3rd February 1973 in the Auditorium

Shaw completed this, his first play, in 1892, as a realistic, didactic play, blending a Shavian love story with a sharp and entertaining picture of Victorian slum landlordism. After some years of neglect recent revivals have delighted modern audiences with its combination of period interest and strong dramatic construction.
