Written in 1904, this brilliantly perceptive comedy represents Shaw's breakaway from the influence of Ibsen and a return to his native Ireland to seek inspiration for his dramatic writing. His understanding of the Irish and English personality gives the play its particular relevance for today. John Bull 's Other Island by BERNARD SHAW with Martin Jarvis , Sean Barrett
' Ireland, sir. for good or evil, is like no other place under heaven: and no man can touch its sod or breathe its air without becoming better or worse. It produces two kinds of men In strange perfection: saints and traitors.'
