The Apple Cart and the British Empire


References to "The Apple Cart" and recent world events. A summary of the kind of future which the British Empire faces, according to Bernard Shaw and "The Apple Cart." Response to "The Apple Cart" in the United States as witnessed by the speaker. Learning to grin and bear Bernard Shaw's critical faculty, with example. Ways in which the speaker's production of the play will differ both from the English and American versions. The hope for an overture specially composed for "The Apple Cart" and written in Canada. The significant absence of any mention of war in the play. Some quotations from Shaw. Some revelations of Shaw himself in "The Apple Cart." Some words on the Empire.
