The Saint Sebastian Players’ 30th Anniversary Season continues with Shaw’s ARMS AND THE MAN, Feb. 18-Mar. 13.
ARMS AND THE MAN questions the romantic ideas about love and war that seem to crop up in every age. During the 1885 Serbo-Bulgarian War, Bluntschli, a Swiss mercenary, steals into the bedroom of Raina, a romantic young Bulgarian woman, to escape a street battle. His practical “cowardice” starts a conflict in her mind about her arrogant fiancé’s blustering and posing, eventually challenging her visions of romance, and she is forced to begin making choices based upon real life rather than fairy tales.
