Bernard Shaw’s

Directed by Stephen Brown-Fried

Heartbreak House, which Shaw began at the beginning of WWI but which was first performed by New York’s famed Theatre Guild in 1920, brings a wildly disparate group of people together in the English countryside over a September weekend to make major decisions about their future. No stone is left unturned as each character is forced to come to terms with his or her past while finding a way to move forward in the face of the coming crisis. This wild and zany comedy is one of the most requested of Shaw’s 65 plays!
