Main Street Theater presents Heartbreak House by George Bernard Shaw

Photo by

September, 1914. The topsy-turvy household of Captain Shotover and his daughter Hesione Hushabye entertains weekend guests — Ellie Dunn, her father and her fiancé. Unfortunately, Ellie's fiancé is a scoundrel, her father is a bumbling prig and she's actually in love with Hesione's husband, Hector. This bold mix of farce and philosophy lampoons British society as it blithely ignores the catastrophe looming on the horizon that will become the War to End All Wars.

Recommended for audiences 18 and up.
