Photo Flash: First Look at Remy Bumppo's YOU CAN NEVER TELL

Below, get a first look at Remy Bumppo's production of George Bernard Shaw's YOU CAN NEVER TELL, playing at the Greenhouse Theatre Center through January 6! Directed by Artistic Associate Shawn Douglass and featuring Artistic Associate Greg Matthew Anderson, the production runs tonight, November 21, 2012 - January 6, 2013 at the Greenhouse Theater Center, Upstairs Mainstage. Approximate running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes (includes one 15-minute intermission).

When Shaw saw The Importance of Being Earnest, he decided to show Oscar Wilde how to really write comedy. The result was You Never Can Tell, loaded with dazzling wit and pointed jabs at turn of the century British society.

Set in an English seaside resort, a young penniless dentist is swept up into the delightful world of a formidable feminist authoress and her three eccentrically-raised children, none of whom know the identity of their father. Invited to lunch, the dentist instantly falls in love with the elder daughter and must now negotiate a maze of family dramas, lawyers, and long-lost fathers, aided and abetted by a kindly old waiter. Shaw's beloved combination of dazzling wit and clear-eyed social critique makes this romantic comedy of mismatched parents and children a perfect holiday treat for the whole family.

Will lovers unite? Will the children ever learn who their father is? Will parents’ wills prevail? Will the twins ever shut up? And will these men survive Shaw’s “woman of the 20th century”? You never can tell.

Shawn Douglass, who directed the theatre's acclaimed presentation of Earnest, is back at the helm, and Greg Matthew Anderson back on the boards, in this multi-generational romp of mistaken identity and ever-changing relationships at a seaside resort.
