George Bernard Shaw's eccentric comedy and scathing attack on inequality, spookily relevant to today's scandals at Westminster. DIRECTOR: Harry Meacher. CAST: Anita Graham, Georgia Cardy, Bryan Hands, Chloe Harbour, Judi Bowker, Tom Reah, Harry Meacher, Roger Sansom, Howard Teale, Albert Clack. A group of assorted guests and family gather at the sprawling ship-like house of the eccentric octogenarian Captain Shotover where a distinct air of irregularity is evident and all normal codes of conduct and etiquette are strangely askew. Each of the assembled party has an individual agenda and is intent upon playing their cards entirely by their own rules. Shotover acknowledges his guests only when it suits him - and then only when he can tear himself away from his plans to obliterate the human race - while his two daughters consider adulterous flings with passionless lethargy. To cap it all - and making the situation even more absurdly offbeat - there's Billy the bewildered Burglar to consider. On the brink of moral bankruptcy the house is a seething tide of peculiar tensions, the emotional waves of which must surely break before the night is out.
