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.

I loved the VIP Red Velvet treatment from the theatre staff! This show was wonderfully staged in a very ingenious way using the entire theatre. Randy Roberts has an amazing voice and carried the entire production. An interesting storyline, but something was missing in the casting of the two male actors. I would still highly recommend this show if you love musical theatre as much as I do.
