The series was written in response to calls for Shaw to write a play based on the "Don Juan" theme. "Man and Superman" opened at The Royal Court Theatre in London on 23 May 1905, but omitted the third act. A part of the act, Don Juan in Hell (Act 3, Scene 2), was performed when the drama was staged on 4 June 1907 at the Royal Court. The play was not performed in its entirety until 1915, when the Travelling Repertory Company played it at the Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh. .
