Shaw Shorts: How he ruled her husband and Overruled

22 April 2021

New productions at the Orange Tree Theatre will begin from Saturday 22 May 2021 and run until Saturday 26 June 2021.

In How he lied to her husband, Aurora is concerned about what has happened to the poems written for her by her admirer, the impetuous Henry, and fears they may get into the hands of husband Teddy. Henry suggests they confess the truth and go to the theatre as planned… to see Bernard Shaw’s Candida. Then Henry arrives home.

Overruled sees two strangers fall in love at sea. Both married they decide they must part, but then are surprised to find their spouses at a hotel together. They have fallen for each other too. Do they stay together or swap?

These two short plays by Bernard Shaw will be directed by Artistic Director Paul Miller following his hugely successful Orange Tree productions of Shaw’s Candida, Misalliance, The Philanderer and Widowers’ Houses.
