Too True To Be Good

February 11, 2008

A glamorous pair of jewel thieves convinces a chronic young convalescent to steal her own jewels and run away with them to a tropical paradise. Her over-protective mother comes chasing after them and a riotous time is had by all. This is Shaw’s 1931 high-comedy journey which takes on fad diets, the medical profession, the military, war, religion, and sex.

Written by George Bernard Shaw in 1931.
