A play by Bernard Shaw
Characters in order of speaking:
The action is set in Germany and London
(To be repeated on October 10)

Shaw's First Play
In 1885 Shaw began to write a play, to be called Rhinegold, in collaboration with his friend William Archer who supplied a three-act plot constructed to a well-tried formula. Shaw was to supply the dialogue. Half way through the second act Shaw reported that he had used up all the plot. Archer declined to supply more. Whereupon Shaw completed the second act and read the play as it stood to Archer who failed to recognise any significant trace of his plot in it and the partnership was dissolved. Seven years later Shaw added a third act, called the play Widowers' Houses, and it was produced in December 1892.
Most critics, confronted with 'a propagandist play, a didactic play, a play with a purpose' instead of a conventional 'romantic drama,' gave it almost as hostile a reception as they had recently given Ibsen whose disciple they held Shaw to be. (In fact he wrote the first two acts of Widowers' Houses before he had heard of Ibsen.) Shaw was unabashed. 'Almost without exception,' he wrote, 'the men who find my sociology wrong are also the men who find my dramatic workmanship bad and vice versa. The effect on me, of course, is to reassure me completely as to my own competence as a play-wright. The very success with which I have brought all the Philistines and sentimental idealists down upon me proves the velocity and penetration with which my realism got across the footlights.' Shaw's account of slum-landlordism in late Victorian London and society's ignorance or complacent acceptance of it remains disturbingly cogent.
You may judge who came nearer the truth: those critics who dismissed the play as a pamphlet in dialogue, or Shaw who claimed that in intention his play was 'a work of art, as much as any comedy of Moliere's is a work of art; a good, practical play which, if adequately acted, will hold its proper audience and drive its story home to
the last word.' (Joe Burroughs)
