Play reading on 13th March at 7.30

Many thanks to all those attended this play reading of the Arms and the Man,  a comedy by George Bernard Shaw, and also thanks to Sue Parker for leading it.

The play was first produced on 21 April 1894 at the Avenue Theatre in the West End and published in 1898. Arms and the Man was one of Shaw's first commercial successes. He was called onto stage after the curtain, where he received enthusiastic applause. Amidst the cheers, one audience member booed. Shaw replied, in characteristic fashion, "My dear fellow, I quite agree with you, but what are we two against so many?"
