Too True to be Good



  • A play by George Bernard Shaw. One of his last works,it was first performed in 1932 in Boston when Shaw was 76 years old.There is little plot. Instead, the characters, who include a thinlydisguised caricature of Lawrence of Arabia (see Meek, PrivateNapoleon Alexander Trotsky), take part in lengthy debatesabout the virtues and vices of capitalism and the sorry moral stateof mankind.
