By George Bernard Shaw

The Man of Destiny

The Man of Destiny is Shaw’s witty attack on empty heroism and political expediency.

It is the year 1796. Napoleon waits in an Italian inn for urgent despatches. Instead he is confronted by a very attractive Strange Lady who seems to know him better than he knows himself. In their highly entertaining battle of wills which ensues, ironically interrupted by the Innkeeper, the fate of the future ruler of Europe hangs in the balance.

The Fascinating Foundling is an absurd farce described by Shaw himself as “A Disgrace to its Author” in which the Lord Chancellor is confronted by two foundlings each insisting that it is his duty to find them a mate.
