YOU NEVER CAN TELL Shaw’s romantic farce for modern audiences Aug 10–Sept 4 You Never Can Tell
By George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Lisa Peterson

Runs Aug 10 – Sep 4. Opening Night August 13, 2016, 8pm

At one riotous lunch, Mrs. Clandon, a famed feminist author and lecturer, is accidentally reunited with her estranged husband, while her high-minded eldest daughter tries to stave off a smooth-talking dentist’s advances. Originally set at a stuffy seaside resort, director Lisa Peterson moves Shaw’s off-beat comedy out of the drawing room and into the Bay Area! Identities are confused, ideals are challenged, and mischief is afoot in this turn-of-the-century romantic farce. What could possibly happen? As a wise waiter continuously, and hilariously, observes, "You never can tell!"
