The George Bernard Shaw Collection

Audiobook

Eight of George Bernard Shaw's most memorable plays in one splendid collection:

Mrs. Warren’s Profession: Shaw pits a clever heroine against a memorable gallery of rogues in this superbly intelligent and still shocking comedy, which was banned for eight years from the English stage after its London debut.

Arms and the Man: Stars Anne Heche as the beautiful, headstrong Raina who awaits her fiancé’s return from battle—but instead meets a soldier who seeks asylum in her bedroom.

Candida: Shaw’s warm and witty play challenged conventional wisdom about relationships between the sexes, as a beautiful wife must choose between the two men who love her.

The Devil’s Disciple: A young hero who disdains heroism makes the ultimate sacrifice for honor and country during the American Revolution, starring Richard Dreyfuss.

Major Barbara: Featuring Kate Burton, this sparkling comedy traverses family relations, religion, ethics and politics—as only Shaw, the master dramatist, can!

The Doctor’s Dilemma: A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne’er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.

Misalliance: A self-made millionaire and his family invite their future in-law for a visit to their estate. In this delightfully clever play, issues of gender, class, politics, and family are all targets for Shaw’s keen wit.

Pygmalion: Shaw’s beloved play about a irascible speech professor who decides to mold a Cockney flower girl into the darling of high society.

    "Har precis startat en provperiod hos Storytel och det är det bästa jag någonsin gjort. Att lyssna ger mig full koncentration på boken samtidigt som jag kan pyssla med annat."

    "Det bästa som har hänt mig på länge. Dessutom lyssnar jag på böcker som jag nog aldrig hade kommit mig för att läsa annars. Jag lyssnar i bilen, på promenaden eller när jag städar."

    "Jag och min man delar familjeabonnemanget och har haft Storytel i 5-6 år. Vi är så nöjda med både appen och Readern. Här finns ett stort bokutbud som passar oss båda!"
