A fantasia in the Russian manner on English themes, by Bernard Shaw. In his 1919 preface, Shaw described the play as `cultured, leisured Europe before the war'. Begun in 1916, the play is a witty satire on the Bohemian classes, the horse-riding classes and the pragmatic politicians and capitalists who hover between the two. Amidst the farce, they are not indifferent to the impending danger but seem unable to help themselves, `like moths round a candle'.
