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.

<p>When two couples find their desires thwarted by parents, fate, and friends, they set out on a chaotic adventure into the Spanish wilderness. Amidst the mountains, the young couples are tangled in a web of desires, hilarious antics, mistaken identities, and revenge. Did we mention mistaken identities?</p> <p>With I’m Yours!, or Deranged by Love, Precarious Theatre sinks its teeth into the idea of emotional risk-taking we all experience as we leap and fall head-over-heels in love. The ensemble incorporates many of the traditions of classical Spanish literature, which strongly influenced Elizabethan drama, including Shakespeare. In fact, Shakespeare used the same plot from this Cervantes episode as the source of his own play, The History of Cardenio, which has been lost.</p> <p>Linking past with present, I’m Yours! brings classical notions of love into the here and now through rock-influenced love songs by H. P. Mendoza and the use of stylized, Picasso-inspired puppets. This show brings together several different disciplines in the company’s training including physical theater, classical comedy, and puppetry. It’s a brand new love story 400 years in the making.</p>
