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 as lived by Hermoine Gingold during WWII’s darkest days, this revelatory approach will makeShaw’s masterpiece more timely than ever. Please note Tuesday - Friday begins 7:30 PM, Sunday 3 PM.
