Barbara is a major in the Salvation Army - but she's also the daughter of Andrew Undershaft, a man who's made millions from the sale of weapons of war. The real battle, however, rages between between the devilish father and his idealistic daughter as they answer the question: does salvation come through faith or finance? This sparkling comedy traverses family relations, religion, ethics and politics - as only Shaw, the master dramatist, can! Download and start listening now!

Shaw is a socialist who views poverty as the worst sin mankind can commit, wishes to abolish all forms of punishment except the death penalty, and spends much of the play attacking the methodology of the Salvation Army, and, by association, most other Christian organizations as well. He attacks capitalism and reviles government, disses on police, and tries to make us view terrorists in a more begnign light. This is would all be very offensive to me if it was done in a ham-fisted kind of way, like how Michael Moore would approach it. However, Shaw is a genius with words and ideas, and he presents well-thought out reasons and explanations for everything he says. Even when I don't agree with his conclusions, I have to admire the persuasiveness of his arguement and the fluidity of his thinking.
