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.

I think the actors were exceptional and spoke with deep intellect. It was different from other plays I've seen. Because of the title, I was expecting some musical dance and song along with the plot, but it was mainly about the record songs played and about introducing the new group bands like the Plastics and others. I really enjoyed the story and actors. Thank you!
