The Philanderer is a play by George Bernard Shaw. It was written in 1893 but the strict British Censorship laws at the time meant that it was not produced on stage until 1902.

The Philanderer is a play by George Bernard Shaw. It is one of the three plays Shaw published as Plays Unpleasant in 1898, alongside Widowers' Houses and Mrs Warren's Profession.

Mrs warren’s profession. with an Introduction by DAVID EDGAR. Published by the Penguin Group.

Shaw believed that theatre audiences of the 1890s deserved more than the hollow spectacle and sham he saw displayed on the London stage. But he also recognized that people wanted to be entertained while educated.

Classic four-act play, first published in 1898  . Although his first profitable writing was music and literary criticism, in which capacity he wrote many highly articulate pieces of journalism, his main talent was for drama, and he wrote more than 60 plays.

Some thirty years ago I was an avid reader of George Bernard Shaw's plays. This play is the first one I've read since then, I enjoyed his philosophical Prefaces even more than his plays. There was no Preface to this play. It was not one of his best, but it was still quite good. Shaw depicts a time when English culture was changing. Women were starting to realize that they were intellectually and emotionally equal to men. Two women in this play, and the men in their lives, show how they are dealing this change. Well worth reading.

Another of Shaw's minor pieces - dated by now - how many in a modern audience would even know what a 'philanderer' is? - and probably rarely seen. Have you ever heard of it? I hadn't - but it's still worth a read since it is by one of the greatest playwrights of the
20 th century.
It's so easy
Universal implications connecting close relationships, makes for this great play. Never settle for anything less than true love! Fine work by G.B. Shaw.

Boy, can Shaw pack a lot of words into a small space -- or is it the fine print?
A fun play, but not his best (Pygmalion).

Everyone in this is pretty silly. It's a quick, entertaining read. The shallowness of everyone is part of the entertainment.

Funny as all get out. Love Shaw's attitude towards men, as well as towards women. Women are strong, wise characters; ;men are self-deluded and pathetic. I'd have loved to have met GBS.

Not the best Shaw, or the worst. a quick read through... probably much better on stage. Flat humor and not very deep.
The plays of Bernard Shaw span many years and cover many topics. They force us to critically view how success in the world is judged. They demonstrate how any of us may unknowingly be an accomplice to or a participant in activities to which we stringently object on a moral basis.
