The Philanderer - 2012 - Off-Broadway

Tickets start at $39

A social satire once considered too shocking for the general public (withheld twelve years before censors allowed a performance), Shaw’s play follows the misadventures of Leonard Charteris, whose simultaneous involvement with two women wreaks havoc on his social life while sharpening his wit. Reputedly a self-portrait, the comedy is a satire on Shaw’s own pet causes, intellectual freedom in the Ibsenite manner, and Feminism as celebrated in the Shavian manner.

Impeaching America is an allegorical political satire about AMERICA who is confused, frustrated, disillusioned and just plain tired.  His solution is to impeach himself.  He wants to quit, but he wants to quit with Honor and with the Due Process as provided for within his document of creation: the Constitution.  He initiates the proceeding by selecting a Bi-Bunal (he wanted to get three, but for many reasons, no one else wanted to do it) consisting of Godd and Satann to determine his/our fate.  He is defended by three attorneys: a liberal, a conservative and a voice of reason.

Of all of Bernard Shaw's wonderful plays, it seems a brave and slightly odd choice for the Orange Tree theatre to choose to revive Misalliance. When the play premiered in 1910, it was hated by critics and audiences alike for its verbose text and uneven plot. It has rarely been seen performed since and unfortunately this production shows that it is easy to see why.
