Handcuffs and rollerskates, fancy boots and flying bricks…it’s socialism or smash!

“Love and politics do not mix,” he declares, leaving his bride and heading straight to…a ladies’ college. Sidney, a dashing millionaire with high ideals, promptly puts his natural charm to work wooing pretty followers for his scheme to overthrow the government.

Of course, the only problem with being a millionaire is trying to convince the world you’re a socialist. But that’s a minor snag next to the consequences of crossing the wrong girl. As things heat up on campus, young love – and British politics – are as entertaining as ever.

Don’t miss this deliciously witty comedy by Jeffrey Hatcher, adapted from George Bernard Shaw’s The Unsocial Socialist.
