In an age of instant communication through e-mail and cellular telephones, the two act play "Bernard and Bosie: A Most Unlikely Friendship" is a reminder of the intimate and old-fashioned art of letter writing. The play explores the complex relationship between literary giant George Bernard Shaw and the poet Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas (the intimate friend of Oscar Wilde) through their own letters to one another in the 1930s and 1940s. The two men are from the absolute opposite ends of the spectrum, however, they manage to connect and form a friendship, which evolved into a kind of Father/Son relationship through the course of their correspondence. The often telling pair of character studies follows the changing nature of their relationship through good times and bad, in health and in sickness. It's a story about character and the ways in which personal fate is tied to the earliest years of one's life, and how the past can have a direct impact on the present.
