HOW HE LIED TO HER HUSBAND & OVERRULED

Two short, sharp, funny plays by Bernard Shaw

★★★★ "Delightfully revived by Shavian specialist director Paul Miller [who] plays the propositions sharp and fast, focusing on the absurd geometries of human desire." The Guardian - read the full review

Featured in The Guardian's Hottest front-room seats: the best theatre to watch online

In 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 sees 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?

directed by Artistic Director Paul Miller following his hugely successful OT productions of Shaw’s Candida, Misalliance, The Philanderer and Widowers’ Houses.

Both OT on Screen livestreamed performances will be the double bill of both plays together as one performance lasting 70 minutes.
