Major Barbara by George Bernard Shaw Directed by Shannon Sindelar
100 years after its premiere on Broadway, Major Barbara's examination of government funded war and the nature of power stands the test of time. In this comedy, George Bernard Shaw pits Salvation Army officer Barbara against her armaments manufacturer father, and questions how human dignity and even faith can be bought.The McKinney Chapel at First Unitarian Church in Brooklyn Heights will house this minimalist production, presented in one act. Staged in an alley configuration, an explosive environment emerges through a stripped-down, 'poor theatre' approach.
