Poster advertising a performance of the one-act comedy play 'How He Lied To Her Husband' by George Bernard Shaw, featuring an illustration of a young man ['Lover', Henry Apjohn] holding a flower he is about to give to the woman, ['Herself', Aurora Bompas] seated; 'Her Husband' (Teddy Bompas, an older gentleman) stands behind her. In the play, the character of Henry purchases tickets for 'Candida' [a popular comedy by George Bernard Shaw, which Henry and Aurora's situation very closely resembles]. 'How He Lied to Her Husband' was first performed as a curtain-raiser to 'The Man of Destiny' at the Berkeley Lyceum, New York on the 26 November 1904; the first full free-standing performance of the play was on 28 February 1905 in The Royal Court Theatre, London.
