Take a blast-to-the-past with our 84th Season production of George Bernard Shaw’s comedy Arms and the Man. Set in Bulgaria at the end of the Serbo-Bulgarian War in 1885, Shaw humorously shows the futility of war and deals with the hypocrisies of human nature.
Some 50 years after the play was published, George Orwell said that Arms and the Man was written when Shaw was at the height of his powers as a dramatist. “It is probably the wittiest play he ever wrote, the most flawless technically, and in spite of being a very light comedy, the most telling.” Orwell said Arms and the Man wears well because its moral – that war is not a wonderful, romantic adventure – still needs to be told.
For the safety of its artists and patrons, Ross Valley Players has canceled the balance of its 2019-2020 season and plans to re-open its 2020-2021 season this September with the uproarious and heart-felt comedy “Ripcord” by David Lindsay-Abaire.
The shows that have been cancelled – “The Glass Menagerie”, “The Packrat Gene”, “The Government Inspector” and “Pride and Prejudice – The Musical” will be produced within the next two seasons.
The Barn Theater will only re-open once it’s safe to do so and we look forward to welcoming our patrons back to The Barn at that time.
