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.

Energetic musical/political review was ambitious, but still working out its kinks. (we saw the opening performance). Difficult to hear a lot of the fast dialogue. Found myself wishing for super-titles. Good concept, and some of it well executed. Mouse-puppets were inspired. Some of the other puppets were more curious. Should shake out to a better performance as the run goes.
