Often regarded as the Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw’s funniest play, and certainly his first commercially successful one, Arms and The Man is a comic play dealing with the futility and hypocrisy of war. Though it tanked critically, the public loved it, and it made enough to allow Shaw to become a full-time, professional playwright. This production of Arms and the Man is directed by Fran Teague, who most recently directed the Town & Gown performances of Twelfth Night and Under Milkwood.
