Arms and the Man

Summary

Arms and the Man by George Bernard Shaw: Presented by The Online Stage.  In Biography for Beginners, a collection of sarcastic quatrains about various celebrities, Edmund Clerihew Bentley wrote:  Mr Bernard Shaw Was just setting out for the war, When he heard it was a dangerous trade And demonstrably underpaid.  This rather unkind stanza is illustrative of Shaw's convenient pacifism, which forms the major theme of this play. For Shaw, war was an anachronistic form of barbarism - in his view, people ought to be able to resolve their differences through intelligent and spirited discourse.  The action of the play, which occurs during a conflict on the Balkans, is initiated by the discovery by Raina, the daughter of an military officer, of a man who has taken refuge in her bedroom. Unfortunately, the man belongs to the opposing army. How will she deal with a notional enemy who behaves with such quixotic courtesy?  Cast  Narrator - Noel Badrian Captain Bluntschli - Rob Goll Major Petkoff - Peter Tucker Officer/ Major Sergius Saranoff - Jeff Moon Catherine Petkoff - Sarah Mitchell Nicola - Craig Franklin Raina Petkoff - Amanda Friday Louka - Anna Grace   Audio edited by Denis Daly
