Comic drama about love and war established Shaw as one of the finest wits of his time. In this new production Bluntschli, a soldier who prefers a supply of chocolates to bullets, is played by a woman, giving new depth to Shaw's iconoclastic romantic play. Bluntschli surprises the young Raina by climbing through her bedroom window looking for shelter, starting a chain reaction of events that shatter Raina's idealistic notions of love and war.

In this new play, the playwright takes episodes from the novel, and reinvents them as speculation on what the relationship between Dodgson and the real Alice Liddell might have been.
