The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet & Passion Play

December 19, 2011

THE SHEWING-UP OF BLANCO POSNET, written in 1909, is Shaw’s rollicking tale of the Old American Wild West!  It’s a rarely seen mystery/comedy of an outsider accused of being a horse thief and is on the verge of being strung up  when a mysterious woman appears.

PASSION PLAY, written, but not completed in 1878, is Shaw’s unfinished first attempt at play-writing!  It’s an irreverent look at Jesus, Judas and the whole gang.
