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.

The play had a wonderful cast and most had great energy. The standout actor was the one who played Sheridan Whiteside. As an ensemble, everyone did a great job. The play is funny and well paced and has so many clever touches. The director did a superb job. The set was lovely and the lighting just right. All in all, well worth seeing.
