Location Details:

Join a close reading of George Bernard Shaw's one-act play "Androcles and the Lion." The Commons SF's chief educator--30 years of classroom experience--explores the straightening message Shaw portrayed in his 1915 preface and script treatment of the erstwhile children's story, which under Shaw's skills becomes an adjuration to choose radical but concrete policy if a culture such as America's today truly wants a different result than the tumult of this past two weeks.

Those desiring to preview the preface and script are welcome to write info(at)TheCommonsSF.org to request a link to free, online access to the texts.
