Androcles and the Lion
Androcles, a humble but devout Christian, befriends a lion in the forest by removing a thorn from its paw. Both lion and man are captured by the Romans to serve as entertainment in Caesar's Circus.  Shaw's play gives us a fascinating examination of the diversity of Christian motives and thought.  There is, in addition to Andrcles, the Patrician lady, Lavinia, whose body recoils from sacrificing to the Roman gods.  The warrior, Ferrovius, refuses to fight in the arena because his religion commands that he turn the other cheek.  And there is the coward, Spintho, who runs away from Christianity. What happens in the arena so impresses the Emperor that he takes a new look at this inspirational theology.
