A full cast of top L.A. talent brings to life the plays of George Bernard Shaw in this eight-part collection. Sound effects and music are minimal; instead, the fast-paced dialogue and wry wit of Shaw take center stage. Highlights include Shirley Knight as a mother making a case for prostitution in MRS. WARREN'S PROFESSION; a guest appearance by Richard Dreyfuss in THE DEVIL'S DISCIPLE; the story of a family caught in the American Revolution; and Shannon Cochran’s transformation as Eliza the flower girl in PYGMALION. For those new to Shaw, this collection is a good introduction to his biting, finely crafted plays. For the enthusiast, audio opens up a new way to experience his works.
