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.

Wonderful! Most well-enunciated, clearly understandable Shakesperean english we've ever heard!?
This play can often get lost in character changes and side characters and plot subterfuge, but not here - We could actually follow most of it! The subtle feminism and cross-gender machinations of Rosalyn were aptly portrayed by Ashley Wickett - I'm smitten! Anthony Fusco as the fool Touchstone was superb!
The acting was consistently top-notch - The younger additions to the ACT roster give great hope for the future!
Join us in celebrating the talents of the A.C.T. M.F.A. Program class of 2011 in their final performance before they graduate—and don't miss this rare opportunity to watch A.C.T. core acting company members Gregory Wallace and Anthony Fusco perform in a more intimate setting. Directed by A.C.T. Associate Artistic Director Mark Rucker.
