STEUBENVILLE, OH—The George Bernard Shaw comedy Arms and the Man will be performed at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Anathan Theatre this November. Filled with romance, warfare, and hilarity, Arms and the Man provokes thought amidst much fun and laughter.
The romantic heroine, Raina Petkoff, is engaged to marry the gallant Major Sergius Saranoff, but then her life is turned upside-down late one night when a war-ravaged soldier breaks into her room seeking shelter. Raina is faced with the harsh reality of war and the meaning of true love.
The play is directed by Dr. Monica Anderson, Franciscan University theatre professor and chair of the Fine Arts Department.
