Audio-described Livestream: Shaw Shorts – Double Bill

Audio description by VocalEyes.

Two short plays by Bernard Shaw, How He Lied to Her Husband and Overruled. Both plays performed in one evening with no interval.

How He Lied to Her Husband. Aurora is concerned about what has happened to the poems written for her by her admirer, the impetuous Henry, and fears they may get into the hands of husband Teddy. Henry suggests they confess the truth and go to the theatre as planned… to see Bernard Shaw’s Candida. Then Henry arrives home.

Overruled. Two strangers fall in love at sea. Both married they decide they must part, but then are surprised to find their spouses at a hotel together. They’ve fallen for each other too. Do they stay together or swap?
