Synopsis: Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic is a parody. This comedy follows the escapades of a group of student wizards who have not been the hero of their own story.

April 14, 19-22 @ 7:30p, April 15 @ 1p & 7:30p
Morgan Theatre
Chase Fine Arts Center, USU

Synopsis: The play takes place entirely on a single Saturday afternoon in the conservatory of a large country house in Hindhead, Surrey in Edwardian era England.

It is a continutation on somve of Shaw's ideas on marriage, Socialism, physical fitness, and women intent on escaping Victorian standards of helplessness, passivity, stuffy propriety, and non-involvement in politics or general affairs.

Misalliance is an ironic examination of the mating instincts of a varied group of people gathered at a wealthy man's country home on a summer weekend. Most of the romantic interest centers on the host's daughter, Hypatia Tarleton, a typical Shaw heroine who exemplifies his lifelong theory that in courtship, women are the relentless pursuers and men the apprehensively pursued.
