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.

About the Ticket Supplier: Opera Academy of California
The Opera Academy of California (OAC, rhymes with "oak") is a non-profit charitable and educational organization, founded to educate new audiences about opera, and to give promising young singers an opportunity to polish their craft. We believe that bringing quality performers and appreciative audiences together will broaden the number of people who become passionate about this wonderful form of musical theatre.
We opened the Opera Academy in June of this year with an appreciation class for audiences on "The Queen of Spades" just prior to the San Francisco Opera's presentation of this Tchaikovsky classic. We are developing a series of opera appreciation classes based on the season of the SF Opera and Opera Companies around the Bay Area. In the future, we will have Master classes for singers that will be open to you. These public Master classes are a great opportunity for opera aficionados to get a behind-the-scenes peek into the work that singers and directors put into the dramatic performance you see on the stage.
