scenes from SMASH by Jeffrey Hatcher, an adaptation of George Bernard Shaw’s novel
An Unsocial Socialist
The story centers on Sidney Trefusis, a millionaire Socialist who leaves his bride on their wedding day in 1910 because he fears his passion for her will get in the way of his plans to overthrow the British government. Sidney vanishes "underground" - disguises himself as a common laborer called "Mengels" - and infiltrates Alton College, a girls' school where well-bred young women are "fitted and fatted to be put on the marriage market." His plan: Take over the school and plant the seed of radical Socialism into the fertile brains of the future consorts of cabinet ministers, captains of industry and peers of the realm. What he doesn't plan on is the presence of one Agatha Wylie, a sixth-form rabble-rouser, who falls hopelessly in love with both Sidney and his politics, and just happens to be his deserted wife's cousin. Love triangles, mistaken identities, Marx, Engels, pistols and the proletariat jostle for position in this adaptation of Shaw's last comic novel, written in 1883.
