A comic play by Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw set during UsefulNotes/TheAmericanRevolution, which tells of the title character, Richard Dudgeon, and his opposite, the Rev.

Adapted into a movie several times; most notably in 1959, starring Creator/KirkDouglas as Richard Dudgeon, Creator/BurtLancaster as Anthony Anderson, and Creator/LaurenceOlivier as General Burgoyne.
