Major Barbara by George Bernard Shaw
As a Major in the Salvation Army, Barbara saves lives and saves souls by helping the poor and confronting social injustice. Andrew Undershaft, her fabulously wealthy father and arms industrialist, is looking to buy his salvation and acquire an heir.  In the balance lies the fight for their moral conscience. Filled with lively comedy and sparkling wit, one of Shaw’s slyest satirical triumphs uses irony and humor to debate the true ‘price’ of morality.
