Sedos Reads is delighted to announce the cast for Shaw's comedy Great Catherine, to be performed via zoom on Thursday 15 April at 7.30pm. This is the final Sedos Reads performance of the season.
Great Catherine uses one of Shaw's favourite plot devices, the love triangle. He had already employed it to great effect in Arms and the Man (performed by Sedos in 2019), with Bluntschli-Raina-Sergius, and again in Pygmalion with Higgins-Eliza-Freddie. In modern parlance mfm;
Shaw had grown up with his parents in such a ménage à trois, and he himself spent his adult life in similar "arrangements".
