Major Barbara (by George Bernard Shaw) is presented by L.A. Theatre Works. This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment.
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!
