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.

This show was not near as exciting or interesting as it read to be. It started our okay, but just didn't quite do it for me. I'm not sure exciting what the show was actually about? What was the plot? Where did it arc? I think it was all about the stupid tooth being pulled out. Who knows? Super nice staff, I felt extremely welcomed by this theater company.
About the Ticket Supplier: Do It Live! Productions
Having assembled a dirty dozen of the hungriest actors the formidable SF State has to offer, Do It Live wants to see an SF that likes its theater like it likes its food: irreverent, cross-disciplinary, ranging from the refined classics to the downright insane and unheard of--like cultivating the theatrical equivalent of Rum and Cornflake Ice Cream. And this crack team of starving SF State Alums can do just that. They're in love with the classics, but tired of the same-old, same-old, and what they lack in mileage they make up for in enthusiasm.
