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.

In 1956 the "Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein" are celebrating their annual quiche breakfast when a nuclear attack forces them down into an isolated bomb shelter. What follows is an outrageous comedy about repressed desire, food politics and warm-blooded Cold War survival.
