By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Ev Lunning, Jr.
A comedy about love, money and the end of the world. Heartbreak House is a soap opera of the 1900’s, where no one is who they seem and everyone gets their heart broken. During a weekend party at the eccentric Captain Shotover’s estate, Ellie causes a commotion with her decision to marry for money rather than love. As the Captain’s daughter Hesione protests, a lively debate about money, morality, idealism, and realism ensues among Hesione’s playboy husband, snobbish sister, and Ellie’s fiance, a wealthy industrialist.
