"WIDOWERS' HOUSES" BY GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
"Widowers' Houses", a hilarious look at British social climbing begins as a boy meets girl romance, but is soon complicated by economic-class differences. Blanche Sartorius is the spoiled daughter of a rich Realtor whose massive fortune has been made from milking poor renters in his sub-standard houses.  An idealistic young doctor, Harry Trent has blindly courted Blanche until he discovers the declassé source of her father's wealth. Unfazed but still smitten, Harry asks if the couple could live on his modest income. Things seem headed for an unhappy ending as Blanche rejects the specter of Middle Class life. But the characters in this play -- including the young lovers -- are more pragmatic than heroic, and so Shaw cleverly manages a happy ending but with a sharply ironic twist.
