Widowers' Houses

Now extended to March 4!



STARTS JAN 26, 2018


By George Bernard Shaw  |   Directed By Joy Carlin


No one is innocent of the excesses of capitalism in this crackling comic satire that launched George Bernard Shaw’s career as a playwright. When Harry Trench, a well-intentioned young doctor, falls in love with hot-tempered Blanche Sartorius, he never suspects that his prospective father-in-law’s fortune is derived from ruthless schemes to exploit the poor. Can the young lovers’ passion survive this fall from innocence? With colorful villains and foils to offset the romantic duo, Shaw’s take on gentrification, rent prices, and social responsibility is as timely today as it was in 1892.

"Zestily carnal" ~San Francisco Chronicle
