The Shewing-Up of Blanco Posnet (1959) Theatre Royal / Bristol, England
Producer: The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School Playwright: George Bernard Shaw Cast: Adrienne Finch, Margaret Barron, Peter Kent, ALan Gibson Character: Elder Daniels
Produced by Duncan Ross Shaw "goes West." The master of wit and paradox finds scope for his irony in the idea of religious conversion through "the deomn drink" in a frontier town in America.
When it was first written it fell foul of the censor and provoked the author to a characteristic attack on the Lord Chamberlain in a "preface" which is twice as long as the play it supports.
