Shaw's 1894 comedic "confection" remains one of the world's most beloved plays. The story's hero, the sensible and war-weary "chocolate cream soldier," is the catalyst for a hilarious and, in Shaw's own words, "delightful firecracker of a play" which explodes the romantic notions of love, war and heroic sentiment.
With the opening of Arms and the Man, Shaw was recognized as a great wit and the play became his first commercial success. A prolific playwright, Shaw went on to write a number of witty and pithy social comedies including Candida, Misalliance, Pygmalion, Major Barbara and Mrs. Warren's Profession.
