The November production for Company Theatre, at The Rose Centre, Belmont, will be Arms and The Man by George Bernard Shaw.
Set in the mid 1880’s, it’s a story of a young girl called Raina, the daughter of a military man, and already engaged, to a heroic soldier, called Sergius. She wants a lot more out of life so, when a charming soldier, on the hop from the battlefield clambers right into her bedroom, what's a clever girl to do? Offer him sanctuary, feed him chocolate or fall in love.
Shaw intended the play, to mock the starry-eyed view of both war and love. Still so relevant today.
Director Reg Williams says, “Shaw's wit, insight and awareness is at its sharpest in this piece.”
The delightful cast have rehearsed for many weeks and travel from as far north as Hatfield Beach to be part of this production at The Rose Centre.
