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.

Overall this production was slow moving and somewhat boring. There were some good moments when it came to acting. Regarding the singing, most of the cast needs vocal training. Their singing voices just are not up to par. I have seen some of the cast in other plays and they were good. A good actor unfortunately does not always make a good singer.
Also, this production is too long. There is quite a bit that could be cut. Certainly different from their usual plays so I am not sure how it will be received based on that alone. It has potential if it is re-worked. Recommend more rocker voices and rocker stage presence for some of the songs. On a positive note, the stage and back drop were well done. Although the stage hands coming on and off were a bit distracting.
The venue gets 5 stars plus. Simply beautiful, clean, and relaxing. We also got lucky as the weather was perfect. It usually becomes freezing so bring layers.
