Plays Directory : The Philanderer

The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other The Mandy Network members who have also been involved in this show.

  • Author
    George Bernard Shaw
  • Written
    1893
  • Setting
    Late 19th Century London
  • Overview
    It was written in 1893 but the strict British Censorship laws at the time meant that it was not produced on stage until 1902.

    It is one of the three plays Shaw published as Plays Unpleasant in 1898, alongside Widowers' Houses and Mrs Warren's Profession. The volume was written to raise awareness of social problems and criticize capitalist behaviour. The influence of Naturalist playwrights is evident by Shaw's constant reference to Ibsen in the play. The Naturalist theatre movement was a reaction to Melodrama, the Victorian theatre tradition of the time.
