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.

About the Ticket Supplier: BustingOut Storytelling
The WC knockoff of 'Porchlight Storytelling SF' was started April 2010, because there wasn't anything like it in the East Bay. The under 21 crowd in Walnut Creek is pretty lively, getting drunk on weekends and making the news, but those of legal age are pretty bored. Sure, Nordstrom's has their Annual Sale and the Cheesecake Factory draws a herd - but that's a Zombie Lifestyle guaranteed to drain the blood out of anyone with a passion for creativity.
So in an effort to keep Walnut Creek from becoming the next Panera, USA - BustingOut Storytelling was created. Once a month people get off their couch and away from their TVs to come together to tell true, personal stories in front of others that admire them for doing it. Every month is a new theme.
All stories are true, personal, never more than 10 minutes, and told without notes. Always interesting, usually funny, sometimes poignant. Five minute stories are accepted from the crowd if there's time. We mix things up, so don't be surprised if there are changes.
