Synopsis: A rollicking romp through the minefields of romantic entanglement, Heartbreak House is Shaw's passionate response to World War I. Vivaciously alive with dangerous flirtations, this vibrant game of hearts and philosophies will keep you chasing the key to life and love. Captain Shotover, an eccentric poet, retired seafarer and inventor is reluctantly hosting a weekend house party at his Sussex estate for his two daughters and their bohemian friends. With larger-than-life characters including the capitalist Boss Mangan, the social climbing Ellie Dunn and the extravagantly bohemian couple Hesione and Hector Hushabye, Shaw compels us to examine our own lives and the way we live them.
