How He Lied to Her Husband
Share this book    
The three-character play is set in the drawing room of a flat located on Cromwell Road in London. Shaw describes Henry Apjohn as a very beautiful youth, moving as in a dream, walking as on air, while Aurora Bompas has an air of being a young and beautiful woman but as a matter of hard fact, she is, dress and pretensions apart, a very ordinary South Kensington female of about 37, hopelessly inferior in physical and spiritual distinction to the beautiful youth. The third character is Aurora's husband Teddy, a robust, thicknecked, well groomed city man, with a strong chin but a blithering eye and credulous mouth.
