Arms and the Man


     "Center REP breaks hilarious new ground with Shaw's Arms and the Man"

- Pat Craig, Contra Costa Times

(Read the entire review)

By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Nancy Carlin

January 27 - February 25, 2012

The master of wit and social comedy at his most entertaining and romantic. What makes a hero? What makes a good husband? Raina must choose between Captain Bluntschli, the practical man who prefers chocolates to cartridges and Sergius, the dashing hero of the mistaken cavalry charge that sent Bluntschli climbing into her bedroom window at night. Shaw's most popular play is a charming tale of romance going awry with unexpected turns, mistaken identities and of course, the author's always surprising opinions - on war and marriage, and everything else!
