In the early days of the American Revolution, Dick Dudgeon--played with easy wit and sly charm by Derek Smith--returns home to New Hampshire to find his family quarreling over his father's fortune and leaning towards supporting the British in the war. The Devil's Disciple declares himself a Patriot and then finds that may mean making a great sacrifice, much to the surprise of the minister's wife, played with sweetness and verve by Lisa Pelikan. Brimming with Shaw's lyrical and insightful dialogue and augmented with the sounds of pealing church bells, fife and drums, and an anticipatory crowd waiting to see a hanging, the play rushes to a rousing conclusion, much to the distaste of the sharp-tongued British General Burgoyne, played by a wonderfully droll Richard Dreyfuss. Classic theater at its best. B.P. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2015]
