Magic: A Fantastic Comedy

G. K. Chesterton

More Information

Description:

George Bernard Shaw goaded the already successful essayist and novelist Chesterton into trying his hand at a play, with this 1913 result. The play examines the powers and mysteries of faith, belief, religion, and of course, magic - a mixture that should be familiar from many of his Father Brown stories. The play's success convinced him to write a couple of other later plays. - Summary by ToddHW Cast list: The Duke: Anthony Doctor Grimthorpe: Ryyla Alder The Rev.
