You Never Can Tell

directed by Robert Verlaque

 

George Bernard Shaw’s side splitting comedy, You Never Can Tell, was born out of a bet: that Shaw could not write a seaside comedy, an extremely popular genre in 1890s England. Shaw, the only person to win an Oscar and the Nobel Prize for Literature, succeeds on his own terms, offering a hilarious and insightful look at marriage, family and the modern woman. Mrs. Clandon, a celebrated writer and independent New Woman, returns to seaside England with her three adult children – Gloria and twins Phillip and Dolly – after an 18-year self-imposed exile in Madeira. The Clandons’ chance meeting with a dashing dentist, Valentine, and his landlord, Mr. Crampton, sets up an unexpected family reunion. It just goes to show that you never can tell.
