A forceful comedy of ideas, mixing satire with profound philosophical vision, George Bernard Shaw’s “Man and Superman” follows the romantic interplay of political firebrand and confirmed bachelor jack Tanner and Ann Whitfield, the charming and scheming woman who intends to marry him. It’s a romantic comedy told on an epic scale, moving from a comedy of manners in an Edwardian manor to a dramatic debate set in hell – with Don Juan and the Devil arguing about the ultimate purpose of mankind. It’s a brilliant blend of light comedy and weighty convictions.

These three organizations are combining their efforts to bring you a varied and powerful season – all under one roof.
