Overview


Synopsis

How He Lied to Her Husband is a thinly veiled farce of George Bernard Shaw’s wildly successful play Candida. The play is an amusing tale that involves the blurred lines of infidelity, budding romance, and the fear of being caught by the better half. A married, aristocratic woman named Aurora is having an affair with a much younger, attractive man. When she loses the love poems addressed to her, she becomes fearful and paranoid. What will happen to her, and what will her husband think? The husband’s reaction will delight and surprise the audience, who should enjoy this brief but very humorous comedy of manners.
