An extremely humorous play written by one of Ireland's most famous playwrites. George Bernard was born in Dublin in 1856. Before becoming a playwright he wrote music and literary criticism. Shaw used his writing to attack social problems such as education, marriage, religion, government, health care, and class privilege.

This kangaroo court contains foreign affairs, love, and bigotry. The defendant has the key to peace between Israel and Palestine, but his plans will fail unless he can get court to adjourn.
