Arms and the Man

6 February, 2018

by George Bernard Shaw
arranged by Frances Favre

Arms and the Man is One of Shaw’s Plays Pleasant: a comical look at love and war.

During the Serbo-Bulgarian war of the 1880’s a Swiss mercenary soldier takes refuge in the bedroom of a romantic young lady who is engaged to a glamorous officer in the Bulgarian army. The girl and her family have a highly romanticized idea of war and are brought down to earth by the pragmatic and efficient Swiss, who settles all of their problems.
