- Too True to be Good
Play by late Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw.
There they are, our Government chaps, hobnobbing at Chequers or Geneva, with a pile of corpses and debts on their backs, crying "What must we do to be saved!"
"A rich young woman catches a pair of burglars in her bedroom, but instead of calling the police she decides to run off with them, and live off the proceeds of her own burglary. The three embark on a permanent beach holiday, a life of fabulous wealth and total freedom.
Written in 1932, during the last great economic collapse, Too True To Be Good asks what we would do if we finally got everything we ever wanted. A bizarrely hilarious and unfortunately contemporary analysis of out-of-control wealth, this is a side of Shaw we rarely see - as the grand old man of the theatre leaves the drawing-room for the beach."
