The Abbey Theatre is proud to welcome back Annabelle Comyn following the success of her vivacious production of G.B. Shaw’s Pygmalion in 2011.
Major Barbara probes the undercurrents of a firebrand Salvation Army major’s relationship with her arms-manufacturing, millionaire father. On a mission to save, Major Barbara must navigate the uneasy terrain where good and evil, morality and economics, salvation and perdition meet.
A brilliantly ironic comedy, this is one of Shaw’s most controversial, witty and entertaining plays.
