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.

Pan Theater performs two sets a night in their main show. One set consists of short form comedy improv. The short form set provides plenty of humor and often a moment or two of drama. Hence they call it comma- comedy with elements of drama. The second set of the evening is long form improv focusing on drama but sure to have moments of comedy- yes...that is why they call it dramedy. The long form set is a mini-play that may tell a complete story or might explore a topic or theme.
Pan Theater performers come from all walks of life: teachers, students, professionals, artists and everything else. Truly: "Improv by the People for the People."
All shows are for mature audiences. We suggest those attending be 18 or above, or accompanied by a parent.
