Misalliance by George Bernard Shaw

Next Saturday, May 26 from 10 pm – midnight on 89.3 KPCC, L.A. Theatre Works’ The Play’s the Thing will air Misalliance by George Bernard Shaw, starring Roger Rees, Eric Stoltz, Joy Gregory, Morgan Sheppard,and Victoria Tennant. A self-made millionaire and his family invite their future son-in-law and his father for a pleasant visit, but all relations are thrown into chaos when a handsome young aristocrat and a daring modern Polish aviatrix literally fall from the sky. In this delightful romantic comedy, issues of gender, class, politics and family are all targets for Shaw’s keen satire.
