Synopsis

When the charming weapons-manufacturer Andrew Undershaft goes toe-to-toe with his passionate daughter Barbara, a Major in the Salvation Army, over his 'ill-gotten' fortune, it leads to the wager of the century. She is determined to save his soul, he is determined to open her eyes to a wider world. Their confrontation will knock their entire family’s moral compass up, down, and sideways, never to be the same again. One of Shaw’s most beloved plays, 'Major Barbara' offers a complex, comic, and challenging look at wealth and poverty, war and peace, and a wickedly funny appraisal of what it truly means to be 'moral' in our modern world.
