Heartbreak House

Antaeus Black Box

Written by: George Bernard Shaw
Directed by: Nike Doukas

George Bernard Shaw’s masterpiece Heartbreak House (“A Fantasia in the Russian Manner on English Themes”) was first produced in 1918, just after the end of WWI. Set in a country manor built in the shape of a ship and helmed by the somewhat mad Captain Shotover, the play maps the journey of ten souls adrift in a rapidly changing world where the old ways are dying and “a soul is a very expensive thing to keep.”
