Three friends and I attended and all enjoyed it very much. Good balanced acting company and good production values. While Shaw can occasionally get dense, this was a delightful, comic, dramatic exploration of the morality and idiocy of war....continued

Description

Set in a New England village during the Revolutionary War, the scandalous Richard Dudgeon, a self-proclaimed devil’s disciple, finds himself mistaken for the local reverend…and arrested by the British army as a rebel. Dudgeon goes along with them and pretends to be the wanted man. Was it for love, country, or duty, or did the devil make him do it? Brimming with Shaw’s trademark humor and paradoxes, _The Devil’s Disciple _brings Shavian wit and “swashbuckling action” to America (it is his only play set in the U.S.).

Aurora Theatre Company founding Artistic Director Barbara Oliver, who directed the company’s productions of Shaw’s The Man of Destiny, The Philanderer, Saint Joan, and others, brings her Shavian expertise to this classic comedy.
