Ask Raina and Brian Chambers the shape of their house in the old mill town of Oella, or even its style, and they look at each other and laugh. Their little house situated in a hollow in southwest Baltimore County, just east of the Patapsco River and old Ellicott City, has been the recipient of so many add-ons over the years that an architectural period is barely discernible. To enter the house, they first must cross a narrow bridge over a creek that runs through their rustically landscaped front yard.

Think of the themes of ideal love and wartime heroism as two giant balloons. Now picture playwright George Bernard Shaw as a little bearded gnome wielding a great big hat pin.That's what you get in "Arms and the Man," Shaw's 1894 comedy, receiving a mostly serviceable, though uneven, production as the 1997 season opener at the Olney Theatre Center.The unevenness is due primarily to the casting of Martin LaPlatney in the pivotal role of Capt. Bluntschli, a Swiss mercenary soldier affectionately dubbed "the chocolate cream soldier."

After two contemporary plays - Harold Pinter's Betrayal and Beth Henley's Crimes of the Heart - Bay Theatre Company closes its season with George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man. Although Shaw's subject of love and war remains current, his 1894 play presents challenges to the company and to the audience. This dialogue-heavy play may present problems to audiences not familiar with Shaw. His admirers will recognize how relevant the playwright's Victorians remain today. Set in Bulgaria during an 1885 war with Austria, Arms and the Man satirizes Victorian society's rigid prescribed behavior and attitudes toward love and war, especially the foolishness of romanticizing war. This work is not easy to produce on Bay Theatre's small stage.

The Bay Theatre Company opens the season's third and final production tonight with George Bernard Shaw's comic satire Arms and the Man, which satirizes the Victorian romanticism of Shaw's era. Shaw's comedy should enhance Bay Theatre's reputation for presenting intelligent theater. At a rehearsal last week, director Lucinda Merry-Browne expressed admiration for Shaw. "I'm drawn to this play because it is so funny and brings humor to the serious subject of war," she said. "Shaw has given us a very rich play that works on many levels.

Difficult though it may be to believe from recent headlines, when George Bernard Shaw chose a Serbo-Bulgarian war as the setting for his 1894 comedy, "Arms and the Man," he was looking for a minor conflict with minimal bloodshed.In a note in the program for Center Stage's current production, director Irene Lewis acknowledges, "Echoes of this contemporary conflict reverberate throughout the play." But, she adds, "To equate the territorial, imperialist war of 'Arms and the Man' with the ethnic and religious genocide occurring in the Balkans today is, to my mind, unfair and misleading."
