Overruled (1912) is a comic one-act play written by George Bernard Shaw. In Shaw’s words, it is about “how polygamy occurs among quite ordinary people innocent of all unconventional views concerning it.” The play concerns two couples who desire to switch partners but are prevented from doing so by various considerations and end up negotiating an ambiguous set of relationships.
Gregory Lunn and Mrs. Juno are in love, having met during a sea voyage. On a sofa in a hotel where both are staying, they discuss their feelings. They are both already married, so they decide they must part, but are unable to do so. They then recognize the voices of their respective spouses, apparently staying together at the same hotel. They leave in confusion. Mrs. Lunn and Mr. Sibthorpe Juno enter and sit together on the same sofa that the other pair has just left. Sibthorpe says he is in love with Mrs. Lunn, but she says she is only mildly attracted to him. Sibthorpe wants her to either accept or reject him outright. Her willingness to merely have an affair disturbs him. Gregory and Mrs. Juno re-enter and both couples reveal their conflicting feelings.
