Plays Directory : Arms and The Man

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
    1894
  • Setting
    Serbo-Bulgarian War, 1885
  • Overview
    Its title comes from the opening words of Virgil's Aeneid: "Arma virumque cano" (Of arms and the man I sing).

    The play was first produced on April 21, 1894 at the Avenue Theatre, and published in 1898 as part of Shaw's Plays Pleasant volume, which also included Candida, You Never Can Tell, and The Man of Destiny. The play was one of Shaw's first commercial successes. He was called onto stage after the curtain, where he received enthusiastic applause. However, amidst the cheers, one audience member booed. Shaw replied, in characteristic fashion: "My dear fellow, I quite agree with you, but what are we two against so many?"
