Arms and the Man
By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by David Armstrong
Performed at the Center Theatre
October 23, 2018–November 18, 2018
Love is a Battlefield. Raina Petkoff is young, beautiful, and filled with romantic notions about love. She’s all set to marry war hero Major Saranoff, but then the combat crashes through her window in the form a soldier fighting for the opposing side. Intrigued, Raina agrees to hide him, but only after learning he carries chocolates instead of bullets. After the war ends, both rival soldiers return for their love, and that’s when the real battle for Raina’s heart begins.
A Chocolate Confection. The dazzling wit will sweep you off your feet. The deliciously eccentric household keeps the action floating like a marshmallow in cocoa. It’s a charming comedy that mixes smarts with silliness and adds just a dash of morality.
Joyously Funny. Shaw’s most popular play was also one of the author’s first commercial successes. Former 5th Avenue Theatre Artistic Director David Armstrong makes his Seattle Shakespeare Company debut with this classic romantic comedy.
