A hilarious cocktail of Victorian farce and Nietzschean philosophy, Man and Superman inverts the myth of Don Juan to portray "the tragi-comic love chase of the man by the woman." John Tanner, an earnest young revolutionary, flees to the Sierra Nevada when he discovers that his beautiful ward has plans to marry him. Captured by a band of international brigands, Tanner eventually falls asleep, and dreams up a sparkling Shavian debate between Don Juan, the Devil, and a rather talkative statue. With a fairy tale ending and a cast fresh from hell, Man and Superman is one of Shaw's finest and most devilishly witty comedies.
