The Apple Cart

June 18, 2012

Shaw’s 1929 farcical comedy does everything possible to tickle us. English King Magnus has quite a day on his hands. His Cabinet, headed by a devious Prime Minister, wants him dethroned. His extravagantly volatile mistress and his extremely ambitious Queen both have their grip on him. And then, the American Ambassador arrives announcing the Grand Plan to colonize Britain. It’s all part of the Royal game, pitting Magnus against the Fates to do whatever he can to not upset THE APPLE CART.

Written by Bernard Shaw in 1929.
