The Devil’s Disciple

By: George Bernard Shaw

April 4, 5, 6, and 11, 12, 13

Director: Kent Knopp

George Bernard Shaw’s play “The Devil’s Disciple” is the story of Richard Dudgeon. Set during the Revolutionary War, Richard is considered by his friends and family be the “Devil’s disciple” because of his rebellious personality and unfaithfulness to religion. However, when British Soldiers visit the home of the town’s minister, Anthony Anderson, with the intentions of arresting Anderson, Mr. Dudgeon’s true colors are shown. In a heroic moment Mr. Dudgeon allows the soldiers to arrest him, having mistaken him for Anderson, although it may mean the death of him.
