The Philanderer is a wickedly witty comedy which takes on most of the classic Shaw issues: questioning societal expectations, sex, relationships, sense of self, science, religion and politics: all in about two hours playing time. The play follows a day in the life of a roguish gentleman doing his best to avoid making a commitment to either of the two women who may or may not actually want him to.
