Barbara, a young upper-class woman in early 20th century London, shows her love for the poor by throwing her energies into her work as a Major in the Salvation Army. Andrew Undershaft, a millionaire armaments manufacturer and her estranged father, loves money and despises poverty. Barbara sees her father as just another soul to be saved. Shaw's classic comedy is as vital today as when it was first written.
