There's great fun
in watching witty people fall in love.
The story, which follows the real-life courtship of George Bernard Shaw and Charlotte Payne-Townshend in the late 1800s, starts with Shaw as a philandering bachelor, spouting revolutionary ideas and extolling his virtues.
“You can’t think what delightful agony it is to be in love with me,” he tells Charlotte, both warning and welcoming her to fall for him. She does, of course, under the watch of Sidney and Beatrice Webb, two matchmakers eager to marry off their friends while furthering their own interests.

Engaging Shaw is a chamber-style staged reading.
