Major Barbara


poster

Description

Major Barbara Undershaft, an officer in The Salvation Army, becomes disillusioned when her Christian denomination accepts money from an armaments manufacturer and a whisky distiller. Eventually, she decides that bringing the message of salvation to people who have plenty will be more fulfilling and genuine than converting the starving in return for bread.

An Ideal Husband


poster

Description

On the surface, Sir Robert Chiltern is an ideal husband - a member of the House of Commons and always respectable in public and in private. His wife, Lady Chiltern, is proud of their privileged life. What she does not know is that Sir Robert's initial rise to power was founded under slightly shady circumstances. Over the course of twenty-four hours, these past indiscretions threaten to come to light, with the fate of the Chiltern's marriage soon at stake.
