About Heartbreak House

In this new adaptation of Shaw’s infamous WWI play, it’s the first days of the London Blitz of September 1940. With the performance interrupted, the cast and audience have joined together to seek shelter in the theatre’s basement. To entertain the crowd, the cast performs Shaw’s most vital paean to resistance and perseverance against tyranny, Heartbreak House. Inspired by actual events during WWII’s darkest days, this revelatory approach will make Shaw’s masterpieces more timely than ever.

Starring Alison Fraser ("The Secret Garden"), Tom Hewitt ("Chicago"), Jeff Hiller ("Bright Colors and Bold Patterns"), Kimberly Immanuel (Off-Broadway: "Pacific Overtures"), Derek Smith ("The Green Bird"), Raphael Nash Thompson ("The Red Letter Plays: Fucking A"), Lenny Wolpe ("Bullets Over Broadway"), Karen Ziemba ("Prince of Broadway"), and directed by David Staller.
