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.

Not worth the trip downtown. Most of the one acts were dull, witless and irritating. The acting was spotty and the actors seemed uncomfortable with the material. I did like the Gertrude Stein play the best. A bright light in a rather dull evening.

About the Ticket Supplier: 3Girls Theatre Company
3Girls Theatre Company is putting "women's work onstage ... where it belongs." Surveys tell us that the small percentage of works by women playwrights produced in the mainstream American theater is roughly the same today as it was a century ago. We at 3Girls Theatre aren't interested in debating the politics of this problem. We're just interested in solving it.
Our not-for-profit start-up company has a singular mission: to promote, nurture and produce the work of local women playwrights of all ages through our annual Festivals, Theatre Lab and GirlWrights youth theater program. Founded by Resident Playwrights Suze Allen, AJ Baker and Lee Brady, we are a company of women writers, supporting one another and collaborating to bring our best work to the stage. Join us on our journey!
