Now Playing Onstage in San Francisco - Week of 1/05/2014 MAJOR BARBARA
American Conservatory Theater
1/8-2/2/2014
A.C.T. continues its tradition of presenting brilliantly reimagined classic works with a sumptuous production of Shaw's great political comedy Major Barbara. In this intriguing tangle of religion and business, a Salvation Army officer becomes disillusioned when her church accepts money from a whiskey distiller and armaments manufacturer-her own father. If the price of supporting the poor is complicity with the country's most successful gun factory, what is Barbara to do? As it explores timely themes of business, faith, family, and morality, Major Barbara remains one of Shaw's most topical and richly invigorating works. Coproduced with one of A.C.T.'s favorite Canadian collaborators, the show will be directed by Theatre Calgary Artistic Director Dennis Garnhum, featuring an international cast of both Canadian and American actors.
