Back to Methuselah is Shaw’s 1921 play that tells the story of all Humanity. Starting in the Garden of Eden and sailing up through the 22nd century, this comedy tackles all the political and social issues Shaw is so notorious for. DO YOU HAVE TO SEE BOTH PARTS TO GET IT? NO! Part Two of this play will be presented on November 19th, and the two parts exist independently of each other. After MAN AND SUPERMAN, this is Shaw’s most often quoted play. Most all of the great lines go, of course, to the women.
