Major Barbara

By George Bernard Shaw | Directed by Gerardine Clark

March 31 – April 9 | Opening Night: April 1

Major Barbara presents Shaw at his provocative, powerful, and astonishingly funny best. Andrew Undershaft is a highly successful arms manufacturer. His estranged daughter Barbara has devoted her life to saving souls with the Salvation Army. When Andrew’s wife and Barbara’s mother, the formidable Lady Britomart, reunites father and daughter, she initiates a battle of wills and wits that has each convinced the other can be converted. Right, wrong, good, evil, moral, or immoral—it all gets turned topsy-turvy when Shaw sets his characters in motion.
