The play revolves around the title character Major Barbara, who happens to be an officer of the Salvation Army. Her full name is Major Barbara Undershaft.

She is shocked and disillusioned when she finds out that her Christian denomination has accepted money from an armament manufacturer, her father, and a whiskey distiller.

She takes a serious decision and determines to bring a message of salvation to people who have plenty will be more fulfilling and genuine than converting the starving in return for bread.
