Overview

When a young doctor discovers that the fortune of his fiancee is a result of her father’s exploitation of the poor, he is appalled. But soon – in a fantastic Shavian twist – he is converted to his future father-in-law’s point of view. Widowers’ Houses, Shaw’s first play, was initially presented in 1892, and was a commercial failure. But, in yet another Shavian twist, it now is considered one of his most relevant and outrageous works.
