by George Bernard Shaw

Join us in the historic Dabney Lounge, where we journey from aristocratic London to a factory for war machines, and meet fools, con-men, saints, and a great many sinners along the way. Most of all, we meet Major Barbara, Shaw's ground-breaking feminist creation, who leaves her wealthy world to become a leader and evangelist in the quasi-militaristic Salvation Army.
But what happens when a woman whose motto is "Blood and Fire!" meets her bomb-making father?
"My religion? Well, my dear, I am a millionaire."
