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.

Based on the life of sharpshooter Annie Oakley, the story revolves around a tomboy from the hills with a knack for shooting guns. Persuaded to join Buffalo Bill's traveling Wild West Show, Annie meets her match in love, and gunfire, with the show's featured shooting ace Frank Butler, who unfortunately wants a "feminine" woman, not a gun-toting dame who is a better shot than he. His male ego bruised, Frank joins a rival wild West show, but he and Annie are ultimately reunited and pitted against each other in a final, musical shoot-out.
