A witty farce with a postmodern political sensibility, Smash by Jeffery Hatcher is an adaptation of George Barnard Shaw’s novel An Unsocial Socialist. Sidney Trefusis, a wealthy Socialist, abandons his fiancé, masquerades as a laborer and plans to take over a girls’ school where young women are "fitted and fatted to be put on the marriage market." Plot twists, mistaken identity and love triangles are mixed with Marxist ideology and radical Socialism to create a satirical romp and unlikely comedy of manners. This adaptation of a late 19th century novel stands the test of time as it speaks to questions of our own economic era.
