Jeffrey Hatcher's witty 1997 play has a distinctly Shavian flavor, not by accident. Filled with eccentric characters and clever epigrams, this comedy is loosely based on George Bernard Shaw's early novel An Unsocial Socialist, written in 1883, before Shaw had found his calling as a playwright. It's the tale of a rich, callow young Englishman dedicated to spreading a Marxist message of revolution by posing as a handyman at an elite girls' school, where he seeks to instill the students—future wives of Victorian Britain's political and financial leaders—with socialist values. But the spirited young women he hopes to influence prove smarter and more independent than he'd anticipated, shaking his innate sense of upper-class-male superiority. Lively performances under Michael D. Graham's direction imbue this trim, intimate production with an engaging sense of screwball whimsy. —Albert Williams $27
