It is a satirical comedy about several political philosophies which are explored in a particularly lively way by some of the most fascinating and entertaining characters ever devised by the imagination of G.B.S. The plot follows the fictional English King Magnus as he spars with, and ultimately outwits, Prime Minister Proteus and his cabinet, who seek to strip the monarchy of its remaining political influence. In the midst of the behind-the-scene political machinations, King Magnus also has to deal with the most demanding and glamorous mistress ever seen!

“Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable — and unique — service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw’s plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city.” — Jesse Green, New York Magazine.
