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.

An Incredible theatrical experience! I knew it would be great but just how great...I was unprepared. The script, staging and acting were all exceptional. The Armory could not be a better venue. The only "negative" was that it was difficult to hear/understand all the words...but the story spoke for itself so the impact was not too great. Not for the faint of heart but truly a memorable experience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Thrilling ... a necessary reminder of the transporting power that is unique to theater." --The New York Times
- "A genuine spectacle that revels in its own theatricality and comes replete with music, marching, explosive effects and its own piper." --Chicago Tribune
Running time is one hour and 50 minutes with no intermission.
Recommended for those age 13 or older. The production contains very strong language, loud explosions and strobe lighting.
