Project Description

The Fascinating Foundling & Farfetched Fables

April 21, 2008

The Fascinating Foundling (1909): A man and a woman are very definite about what they will and what they won’t tolerate in a mate. Having little or no family is a plus. A lawyer unwittingly helps them find each other.

Farfetched Fables (1949): This Shavian classic takes us on six separate journeys. Starting in 1949 and jumping well into the future, we get a chance to see just how absurd we are in the present and how little we may change.

Both written by George Bernard Shaw.
