In You Never Can Tell, it's the turn of the 20th century, and a world-famous author and her grown children have returned to England after 18 years abroad. But when her missing husband (who may also be the missing father) appears out of the blue, this fascinating clan face love, family, money, sex, social and political issues, women's rights-and the dangers of dentists in love. Shaw's whimsical wit whirls us into a world where sweeping change has unexpected comic consequences.
