In this modern masterwork -- critically praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht -- the great Irish writer George Bernard Shaw pits a military industrialist against his crusading daughter. She's a Salvation Army major; he's an arms manufacturer and whiskey distiller -- on certain issues, they could not disagree more. But when he begins donating money to her organization, matters come to a head as the characters grapple with questions of business, faith, family and philanthropy. After 16 years, A.C.T. brings Shaw back to the stage with this co-production with Theatre Calgary, one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, featuring an international cast of Canadian and American actors.

You can't beat this entertainment value...the show was very engaging and the acting remarkably good for such a small venue...this is a show that will appeal to most people--it's funny and also pretty amazing considering it's based on a true story

Moonlight and Magnolias
A comedy by Ron Hutchinson
Directed by Stewart Lyle
Featuring: John Hale, Keith Jefferds, Tim Reynolds, Donna Turner
It’s 1939 and producer David O. Selznick’s new film Gone With The Wind is in trouble. The new director and screenwriter are convinced the movie will flop. Can Selznick bring order to the chaos and rescue the monumental project? Watch art being created one crazy step at a time, as the creative team grapple with artistic compromises, commercialism, the politics of race, and even the closing line of the movie!
Note: peanuts, peanut shells and peanut dust are present throughout the performance.
