When is nice too nice? Lady Denison and her daughter Margery are about to find out when they invite the dullest, most unpleasant people they can find to their house for the weekend. After all, anyone can be kind to the pleasant, but who will care for the mean, the boring and the disagreeable? As the weekend unfolds, love blossoms between Margery and a young man who may have been involved in some unseemly dealings, and we learn what true charity really means. Shaw called Hankin “the most gifted writer of the high comedy of the kind that is a stirring and important criticism of life. Audiences and critics raved about our productions of other Hankin comedies, including The Return of the Prodigal (2001 and 2002) and The Cassilis Engagement (2007).
There are also evening performances available on select nights.
