In this reading seminar we will read and discuss the three early plays which Shaw categorized as “unpleasant”: Widowers’ Houses, Mrs. Warren’s Profession, and The Philanderer. We will consider the biting social commentary, the wit, and the provocative themes of these earliest plays, along with the history of their development and their staging.
