Gingold Theatrical Group's Project Shaw: your monthly guide to reason.
This month: Major Barbara by Bernard Shaw
Major Barbara by Bernard Shaw, 1905. One of Shaw’s most popular and controversial plays. Written as a drawing-room comedy, there are few if any hot-topics Shaw doesn’t tackle. In this dazzling work, the title character is one of the wealthiest heiresses in the world, but has chosen a life a service in the Salvation Army. Her father, whom she barely knows, comes back into the family’s world and everyone’s life is irrevocably changed forever. Shaw creates some of his most memorable characters in this play! We’re reminded of the vital importance of taking an active part in our own life and never to take anything for granted.
