Overview

Man and Superman was the first drama to be broadcast on the BBC's Third Programme on October 1st, 1946. To celebrate Radio 3's 50th anniversary, the play has now been directed by Sir Peter Hall, and preserved for all time in this lush audio dramatization.

"A comedy and a philosophy," Man and Superman is based on the Don Juan theme and, using all the elements from Mozart's Don Giovanni, Shaw reordered them so that Don Juan becomes the quarry instead of the huntsman. Boasting an outstanding cast including Ralph Fiennes, Juliet Stevenson, Dame Judi Dench, John Wood, Nicholas Le Prevost and Paul Merton, this four cassette release includes an exclusive interview with director Sir Peter Hall.

This is George Bernard Shaw at his finest. With great sophisticated humor it clearly analysis societies "bunkeries" [Yes, I made up that word]. It is very much worth the reading. The particular copy that I received did not contain the "Handbook for Revolutionaries" that typically accompanies the main book. I consider this a significant failing.
