Current and Upcoming Events

Opening tonight, the Extracurricular Players at Caltech (ExPliCIT) present George Bernard Shaw’s comic masterpiece MAJOR BARBARA. We have an incredible cast (headed by Giulia Pellegrino, daughter of Caltech Professor Sergio Pellegrino) and crew, who have created a production that’s both hilarious and fascinating. Please join us!


by George Bernard Shaw

Performed in Dabney Lounge on the Caltech campus.

August 8 & 9 at 8 pm

August 10 at 2 pm

August 15 & 16 at 8 pm

August 17 at 2 pm

Join us in historic Dabney Lounge, where we journey from aristocratic London to a factory for war machines, and meet fools, con-men, saints, and a great many sinners along the way. Most of all, we meet Major Barbara, Shaw's ground-breaking feminist creation, who leaves her wealthy world to become a leader and evangelist in the quasi-militaristic Salvation Army.

But what happens when a woman whose motto is "Blood and Fire!" meets her bomb-making father?

"My religion? Well, my dear, I am a millionaire."
