Bernard Shaw sits among the great playwrights of the English language; this collection brings together five of his classic plays as adapted by the BBC. Titles include: 'Pygmalion' (1973) - Perhaps Shaw's most well-known play, this witty exploration of class and gender stars Lynn Redgrave and James Villiers. 'Androcles and the Lion' (1984) - Billy Connolly stars as the Christian heretic about to be thrown to the lions in ancient Rome. 'Heartbreak House' (1977) - Shaw's passionate response to World War I was this rollicking romp through the minefields of romantic entanglement. Captain Shotover (John Gielgud) is reluctantly hosting a party for his two daughters and their Bohemian friends; full of larger-than-life characters and Shaw's characteristic linguistic wit. 'The Millionairess' (1972) - George Bernard Shaw's brilliant farce on the true relationships between class, capital, power and labour stars Maggie Smith as Epifania, glamourous, clever and the richest woman in the world. When she meets Egyptian doctor Tom Baker, she has an interesting task for him to perform - make 150 pounds into 50,000 in six months! 'The Apple Cart' (1975) - Set 40 years in the future, a king must deal with an unruly mistress and a cabinet seeking a constitutional monarchy in this comedy of ideologies starring Helen Mirren and Prunella Scales.
