Misalliance

Hypatia Tarleton, uneasily engaged to bright yet immature aristocrat Bentley Summerhays, longs for adventure to drop out of the sky. And with a sudden crash of glass, it does.

Enter Lina Szczepanowska, Polish acrobat and daredevil pilot whose independent spirit galvanises the household.

Meanwhile, an unhappy cashier also infiltrates this Hindhead idyll, bearing a grievance and a gun…

By the end of the day, eight marriages have been proposed. But which are the misalliances?

If marriages were made by putting all the men’s names into one sack and the women’s names into another, and having them taken out by a blind-folded child like lottery numbers, there would be just as high a percentage of happy marriages as we have now.

One of Shaw’s most playful and inventive early comedies about class and Feminism gets its first major revival in 30 years.

Paul Miller directs following his acclaimed productions of Shaw’s The Philanderer and Widowers’ Houses at the Orange Tree.
