ADMIRABLE BASHVILLE is based upon Shaw’s own highly UNsuccessful novel, Cashel Byron’s Profession, which follows a world champion prizefighter who tries to woo wealthy aristocrat Lydia Carew without revealing his illegal profession. Meanwhile, she also has a secret admirer in her formidable footman, Bashville. He is handsome, smart, efficient and ever-watchful. The novelty of this particular play is that Shaw wrote it as a parody of Shakespeare. The entire play is, in fact, written in blank verse.
As the characters are all ‘contemporary’ this makes for unique comic lunacy in Shaw’s canon.
These are unique script-in-hand performances!
