Play in three acts by Luigi Pirandello, produced in Italian in 1917 as Cosi e (se vi pare) and published the following year. The title is sometimes translated as Right You Are (If You Think So), among other variations. This work, like most of Pirandello's plays, contrasts art and life, demonstrating that truth is subjective and relative. No one has ever seen Signor Ponza's wife and her mother, Signora Frola, together. Councillor Agazzi, Ponza's curious employer, pries into Ponza's private life. Ponza claims that his wife is really his second wife, the first having died in an earthquake that destroyed all verifying documents. Too, his wife only pretends to be Signora Frola's daughter to humor Signora Frola, who, he claims, is insane. Thoroughly bewildered, Agazzi demands to meet Ponza's wife, who arrives, heavily veiled, proclaiming herself as both the daughter of Signora Frola and the second wife of Ponza. The "truth" of the matter remains a mystery. -- The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature

Though it is a comedy it is very dark and cold. The funny moments are "laugh out loud" funny while a cold tone continues to brood underneath. Unlike the other Shaw I have read, the humour never quiet catches and quenches the icy tone of the play. As with most Shaw, the play ends on an "up". But the rather chilly last scene underscores his social comment on society.
For a fan of Shavian comedy, this play is a thrifty buy.
