Chris Coleman talks "Major Barbara" with Artslandia
March 23, 2018
“It feels somehow fitting that my final production for Portland Center Stage is a play by George Bernard Shaw. He is one of my all-time favorites, and this is the sixth production of his that I’ve worked on. What I find delicious about the piece right now, is the fact that Shaw, one of the early members of the Fabian Society (the socialist party of England), is wrestling with capitalism in the bluntest terms we see in his work. And the outcome is not at all what we anticipate walking in. As with all of his plays, it is rich with irony and brilliant thought, but it also sparkles with his ever-present wit.” — Artistic Director Chris Coleman
