WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Nicholas Hytner directs Major Barbara, written by George Bernard Shaw in 1905. How do you change the world? What happens when your ideals depend upon money, and money from corrupt causes? When Major Barbara's struggling Salvation Army Mission is offered financial support from Bodger's drink's empire and her own father's vast weapons' business, she is faced with an agonising choice. Can morality be upheld by immoral means? Shaw's superb comedy of ideas tackles issues which are startlingly alive even now - the corruption of ideals by money, the growing power of Big Business over human freedom and the dilemma of accepting an inheritance tainted by blood. Part of the Travelex £10 season
