Shaw Festival 2007 Comments and Reviews-The Circle
  steve  2007-05-07 05:20   The Shaw brochure tells us: " Elizabeth and Arnold Cheney live an ordered, respectable married life. This comes to an abrupt halt, however, when Elizabeth hears that Arnold’s mother, who ran off to Europe with her lover many years before, has returned to England and decides that a reconciliation is in order. Add an unexpected visit from Arnold’s urbane father, and the presence of a young man who dramatically pronounces his love for Elizabeth, and you have the ingredients for one of Somerset Maugham’s most exquisitely glittering comedies.

As in our recent hit The Constant Wife, Somerset Maugham explores the compromises and bargains that seem so necessary to married life – in this case putting to the test the notion of leaving everything behind for the sake of “true love”. "

Will you like this play? Professional reviews are available online and in the media once the show is officially open. However, in our experience, many critics often write reviews that do not match at all with the reaction of our guests.

So, for a more candid reaction, we are asking for comments and reviews from the people who visit us! Jane and I go to all the plays and we will post as soon as we have attended. You too can post your overall rating about the play on a scale of 0 to 4 stars, along with any comments you may have.

Visit the The Circle Shaw page for information and the play schedule.
