How He Lied to Her Husband is a one-act comedy drama by George Bernard Shaw, who wrote it, at the request of actor Arnold Daly, over a period of four days while he was vacationing in Scotland in 1904. In its preface he described it as "a sample of what can be done with even the most hackneyed stage framework by filling it in with an observed touch of actual humanity instead of with doctrinaire romanticism." The play has often been interpreted as a kind of satirical commentary on Shaw's own highly successful earlier play Candida (which one of the characters gets tickets to see).

This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with additional information about the play and its author, including an overview, summary, list of characters, information on the preface, relation to Candida, adaptations, biographical and bibliographical information.
