Overruled  is a comic one-act play written by George Bernard Shaw in 1912.  In Shaw's words, it is about 'how polygamy occurs among quite ordinary people innocent of all unconventional views concerning it.'  The play concerns two couples who desire to switch partners, but are prevented from doing so by various considerations and end up negotiating an ambiguous set of relationships.
