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.

Voted “Standout New Work” by the Silicon Valley Small Venue Theatre Awards, this original musical is a kick for anyone who loves TV game shows like What's My Line, Price is Right, Queen for a Day, Beat the Clock, I've Got a Secret and Match Game. The creators pay homage to all of those game shows and many more in this new musical, which combines the excitement of live TV game shows with the scandal of the 1950s rigged quiz show investigations. Patrons are encouraged to get their tickets early and ask for a Nielsen Seat to help influence the outcome of the show.
