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.

Very good show. Based on previous reviews, I wasn't sure I was going to like this one...but I absolutely did. Great acting, many stellar performances, cleverly written play. I loved the IDOL format, but agree that the show was about an hour too long....I started getting tired near the end. My bigger problem with this show was the kinda odd audience, a couple who had really poor theatre etiquette (chewing gum loudly, eating from noisy plastic baggies, coming in late and cutting across stage, WEIRD).
