Major Barbara


George Bernard Shaw’s great drama of moral ambiguity will place the Undershafts in 1930s Washington, DC, when the Bonus Army camped on the banks of the Anacostia River. As directed by Pallas Artistic Director Ty Hallmark, this Major Barbara grapples with gun culture and class warfare as we continue to live in a world decades deep in wartime economies and racial strife.
