Join us for a lively group analysis of George Bernard Shaw’s Major Barbara facilitated by Benjamin Fainstein, literary manager and resident dramaturg at The Armory. Attendees will have the chance to share impressions and pick each other’s brains about this dynamic text. The class will consider the script from both a literary perspective and a dramaturgical one, touching on issues of Shaw in performance as we talk through our responses. Collectively, our investigation of this classic play’s characters, themes, and dramatic structures will illuminate its many resonances for a contemporary world.

All are welcome to attend; the only requirement is to read the play in advance. Note: while we truly hope you will join us for a performance of The Armory’s production of the play, seeing the show is not a prerequisite nor is our production the focus of this particular session.
