About this show

Major Barbara as you've never seen it before. Erica Gould's unique production drives Bernard Shaw through an original theatrical landscape with raucous hilarity at breakneck speed and takes a motley crew of extraordinary characters to the edge of reason. Hold on to your hat. Bernard Shaw supercharged.

Helluva Theatre Company's inaugural production forces us to question our assumptions about right and wrong, religion and money. Shaw's comic family excavation of fathers and daughters, mothers and sons, ex-wives and estranged husbands is joyously confronted in a production that puts the fun in dysfunction.‎

Class and privilege, morality and religion, the welfare state, war and peace. On the heels of a bruising election cycle, when we've been presented with the truth as false and the false as true—Major Barbara is a more potent cocktail than ever. Drink up.
