Mrs. Warren's Profession by Bernard Shaw

Vivie Warren, an independent, optimistic and pragmatic young woman intent on pursuing a career in business, is staying with her mother Kitty after graduating from Cambridge. Vivie is keen to know the truth about her mysterious and wealthy mother, who has kept her distance from her daughter yet given her the best education that money can buy. When Vivie discovers that her comfortable upbringing has been funded by her mother‘s unorthodox profession the sparks fly.

Gripping, moving and devilishly witty, Bernard Shaw’s verbal mastery sparkles as he examines the complex relationship between mother and daughter, while offering an astute view of the corruption at the heart of Victorian society.

Written in 1893, and now widely regarded as one of Shaw’s finest plays, Mrs. Warren’s Profession was originally banned due to its controversial content and was not given a public performance in London until 1925.

Set & Costume Design by Francis O’Connor
