Shaw's most popular play, "Arms and the Man" is a wartime romance satirizing both the glory of battle and a young girl's idealistic notions of love. Raina adores her dashing warrior fiancÚ, until a Swiss mercenary and realist (who would rather carry chocolate than ammunition), bursts through her bedroom window seeking sanctuary. Raina is torn between two very different men and two very different notions of love.
