Event Description:
Set in the Steampunk world of Victorian London and filled with humor, pathos and some of George Bernard Shaw's most challenging ideas, Major Barbara has been universally praised as a unique mix of Oscar Wilde and Bertolt Brecht.

In this comedy of ideas, Shaw pits Andrew Undershaft, a millionaire weapons manufacturer, against his own daughter, Barbara, a major in the Salvation Army, in a fascinating and uneasy philosophical debate about the best way to save a man’s soul—with bullets or bread, cannons or Christ. Guaranteed to spark fierce post-show discussions, critics have hailed Shaw’s masterwork as a witty, hypocrisy-revealing comedy that mixes war and morality into "dramatic dynamite."
