Written by George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Jack Going
On a beautiful Saturday afternoon, wealthy underwear merchant John Tarleton, his wife and adult children, Johnny and Hypatia, host a small party at their country estate. The invited guests include Hypatia’s prospective husband — a well-meaning, if wimpy, son of an aristocrat. Is it a match? As Hypatia longs for excitement and a break from convention, adventure falls from the sky…literally! An airplane crash brings unexpected visitors, and with them comes more excitement (and suitors) than Hypatia bargained for.

One of two state theaters of Maryland, OTC is situated on 14 acres in the heart of the beautiful Washington-Baltimore-Frederick “triangle,” within easy access of all three cities.
An award-winning regional theater, Olney Theatre Center operates under an Actors’ Equity Association Council of Stock Theaters (COST) contract, one of only three theaters in the country to operate under such a contract.
In addition to its mainstage season, which emphasizes 20th-century American classics, new works, area premieres, reinterpretations of classics and musical theater, OTC offers a wide range of programs and affiliations including: National Players, America’s longest running classical touring company (since 1949), which performs for high school and college audiences in over 25 states; Potomac Theatre Project, which offers experimental and alternative plays that explore provocative and challenging human situations, ideas and visions; special school performances of mainstage shows; a free Summer Shakespeare Festival; and post-show discussions.
