The Devil’s Disciple, written in 1896, is Bernard Shaw’s classic comedy that weaves a story around the unlikely backdrop of the American Revolution! Some of Shaw’s most entertainingly iconographic characters fill out this tale of revolt: of one country against another as well as of the inexhaustible battle of the human spirit — how we choose to create and define ourselves in the face of societal expectations. In this play, we find ourselves in a 1777 New Hampshire village where Dick Dudgeon opens his heart to life. Along the way, everyone goes through profound changes of discovery, hope and strength.
