Misalliance by George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Luigi Salerni
Adventure drops from the sky in this uproarious tale of romantic entanglements. With secrets and surprises bubbling under the veneer of social niceties, what will burst free when it does? UIC’s own Luigi Salerni directs this irreverent romp as the caustic wit of playwright George Bernard Shaw transforms the stage into a forum for laughter and “good ideas.”
