Meadows Theatre presents Major Barbara through Dec. 2, 2012

For the final performance of the Fall 2012 semester, SMU Meadows Theatre presents George Bernard Shaw’s Major Barbara.

The play, first performed in 1905, explores the family dynamics of the Undershafts and the very different values of each family member – especially in the relationship of Mr. Undershaft, an estranged father and successful military industrialist, and his daughter, Barbara, a major in the Salvation Army.

Major Barbara is directed by Stephen Fried and features a cast of SMU Meadows students plus Dallas actress Lynn Blackburn, best known for her recurring role in the NBC series “Friday Night Lights.”

Performances begin in the Greer Garson Theatre, Owen Arts Center, at 8 p.m. Nov. 28-Dec. 1 and at 2 p.m. Dec. 1-2. Tickets are $7 each for faculty, staff and students.
