Heartbreak House

By Mad Cow Theatre (other events)

20 Dates Through Sep 01, 2019

By George Bernard Shaw | Directed by Tony Simotes

Aug. 9 – Sept. 1, 2019

The nation is on the brink of massive change in 1914, but is Britain up to the challenges that lie ahead? In the English countryside on the estate of Captain Shotover, an extraordinary assemblage of guests gathers to reunite and reacquaint. Affairs begin, engagements end, and hearts and minds become irreparably ensnared in a young woman’s dilemma—whether to marry for love or for money. George Bernard Shaw—the unequivocal master of wit and social thought, bitingly chronicles the demise of the leisure class in his favorite play Heartbreak House.
