Arms and the Man

September 7- October 22 , 2014

Written by George Bernard Shaw

Directed by Stacey Connelly

Raina Petkoff, a wealthy young woman with a taste for melodrama, is engaged to Sergius Saranoff, a dashing major in the Bulgarian army. On the night of her fiance’s triumph on the battlefield, a soldier in the Serbian army — a Swiss professional, with no national interest — bursts into her bedroom, and begs her to hide him so that he will not be killed. Raina complies, though she thinks the man a coward. Raina’s mother, imperious social climber Catherine, helps her smuggle the soldier away, but not before Raina has lost a bit of her heart to this pathetic specimen.

Study Guide


"Director Stacey Connelly captures Shaw's signature wit and charm in this classic, romantic comedy which illuminates the resulting humor of heroic ideals turned on their head."
