On the Rocks

November 16, 2009

A heart-warming comedy about money, greed, politics and sex. This viciously witty comedy tackles, head-first, the unthinkable concept of a country in the midst of an economic depression. Unemployment, health care, human rights…you name it. It’s a riotous cast of character, assembled as only possible in the imagination of the always surprising G.B.S.

Written by George Bernard Shaw in 1933.
