Only a bravura performance

  • Sep 22, 2010
Shaw called this short comedy a "bravura piece," meaning that it was written for an actress to hand her a chance to give a startling performance before an audience in a brief twenty minutes or so play. Shaw said that his actress performed well, but he only received one comment on the play. The person was satisfied that it was not too long. The critique seems justified. There is nothing of any significance in the play, no new message; it is funny, but not that funny.

The story is about a revolution in a country that had been ruled with a heavy hand by monarchs for a long time. The people finally revolted and there are about a half dozen different revolutionary parties with different agendas. The story focuses on two people: a somewhat silly sycophantic general who had obeyed the rulers his entire life and wanted to continue to do so, and the daughter of the monarch who realizes that the cruel monarchy has to be replaced. The general does not know what to do. The princess does, and she also knows who should take the lead.
