Of playwrights whose names became adjectives, few conjure more wit, satire, social criticism, and downright impishness than “Shavian.” Among other passions, he believed women were stronger than most men and carried the “life force.” Major Barbara is just such a play. Here George Bernard Shaw takes on both the Salvation Army and the munitions industry. “Do you dare to make war on war?” challenges Barbara’s father, Andrew Undershaft. As always with “Off the Page”, we attempt to get the play on its feet and Shaw’s witty words in our mouths. So prepare to get out of your seats to participate in one of Shaw’s as always energizing plays.
