Arms and the Man

1020 W. Bryn Mawr, Chicago, 60660 | directions
773-293-3682
By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Brian Pastor

Bluntschli, a Swiss soldier fonder of chocolates than of bullets, hides in the bedroom of Bulgarian heiress Raina while escaping from battle—a development that disturbs her fiancé Sergius, a swaggering cavalry-officer from the other side. Shaw calls it “an anti-romantic comedy.” George Orwell said ARMS AND THE MAN was probably the wittiest play (Shaw) ever wrote, the most flawless technically, and in spite of being a very light comedy, the most telling, because its moral—that war is not a wonderful, romantic adventure—still needs to be told.
