After his explosive turn as lead Richard Shannon in last season's A Man and Some Women, Graeme Somerville returns to play Barbara's admirer Adolphus Cusins. His haunting portrayal of the guilt-ridden Henry Law in the highly praised 2011 production of When the Rain Stops Falling still resonates.
Laurie Paton's return this season as Barbara's manipulative mother Lady Britomart marks her sixteenth season at The Shaw. Among her most memorable roles, audiences will recall her last appearance at the Royal George as the scheming Regina Giddens in The Little Foxes.
Major Barbara also features additional members of the accomplished Shaw Acting Ensemble: Wade Bogert-O'Brien as Charles Lomax, Alana Hibbert as Jenny Hill, Ijeoma Emesowum as Sarah Undershaft, Peter Krantz as Peter Shirley, Billy Lake as Snobby Price, Catherine McGregor as Rummy Mitchens and Ben Sanders as Stephen Undershaft.
