George Bernard Shaw’s 'The Devil’s Disciple' at Shakespeare Theatre July 2

June 24, 2014 at 8:00 AM

MADISON, NJ — The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey presents George Bernard Shaw’s Revolutionary War drama The Devil’s Disciple, with performances beginning July 2 at the F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre, 36 Madison Ave.

The Devil’s Disciple was Shaw’s first commercial success and established the signature Shavian balance of comedy, drama, and his astute exploration of human nature. As Shaw’s only play set in America, The Devil’s Disciple is set in 1777, amid the tumult of the American Revolution. Nearby insurgencies send shockwaves through the small town of Westerbridge, New Hampshire, particularly into the lives of the Dudgeon family.

The “devil’s disciple” is Richard “Dick” Dudgeon, a foil of “flaunting Vice” to the rest of his family’s puritanical “Virtue,” to quote Shaw’s stage directions.  When Richard returns home for the reading of his father’s will, his life becomes entangled with the trusted local minister Anthony Anderson, causing both men to question the true meaning of honor.
