The Devil’s Disciple is the first installment of a trilogy, Three Plays for Puritans, which followed Shaw’s earlier dramatic collections, Plays Pleasant and Plays Unpleasant.. The action is set during the American war of Independence. Richard Dudgeon, who has become an outcast from his puritanical family due to his religious apostasy, returns home on the death of his father. The rest of the Devil's Disciple may have actually occurred, like most stories invented by dramatists; but I cannot produce any documents. Major Swindon's name is invented; but the man, of course, is real. There are dozens of him extant to this day.

Shaw stands "do or die" melodrama on its head, with a cast of unforgettable characters, from the deliciously urbane "Gentlemanly Johnny" Burgoyne, to the misguided romanticism of beautiful young Judith Anderson, to the Devil's Disciple himself, a dashing young American hero who disdains heroism, even as he makes the ultimate sacrifice for.   The Devil's Disciple Language: English: LoC Class: PR: Language and Literatures: English literature: Subject: United States -- History -- Revolution, -- Drama Subject: Burgoyne, John, -- Drama Subject: Puritans -- Drama Subject: New Hampshire -- History -- Revolution, -- Drama Category: Text: EBook-No. Cited by: 3.
