Bernard Shaw's The D e viZ's Disciple. Since this 50th year is comprised of shows which you have enjoyed in the past, we wanted to give this classic Melodrama a modern look. Although The Devil's Disciple is a bag of old Melodramatic tricks (the scapegrace with a better nature who protects an oppressed orphan, the reading of a will in his favor, the heroic sacrifice, the court-martial, scaffold and reprieve), they are used to drive home a deeper emotion and moral contrary to the ethics of Melodrama. Not only does the hero of this one disappoint the expectations excited by his romantic,role by repudiating the notion that he was sacrificing his life for the heroine's sake, but this heroism itself is finally exhibited to a disadvantage beside the really efficient though unself-sacrificing energy of a robust, entirely prosaic parson. Everything that had happened before had made us feel the superiority of Richard; but however keenly we had felt that, or the Author himself had sympathized with him, he was not going to permit us to exalt martyrdom above effective service in a cause. .. after the thea tre .
