Major Barbara


By GEORGE BERNARD SHAW
Directed by DENNIS GARNHUM
Starring DEAN PAUL GIBSON and GRETCHEN HALL
In co-production with American Conservatory Theater (San Francisco)


Young Major Barbara of the Salvation Army is dedicated to saving souls. When she is reunited with her father, a millionaire weapons manufacturer, it seems the two are destined to see the world through very different eyes.  In this battle of good versus evil, finding a winning side is never as simple as it seems. Smart, funny and delightfully relevant.


In this clever comedy, Shaw divides a family between two very powerful subjects: war and poverty. You’ll be dazzled by the ideas.  We partner with A.C.T. in San Francisco, presenting Americans and Canadians together in this very British play.  International, indeed!
– Dennis
