Mrs. Warren's Profession
George Bernard Shaw
Directed by Helen Bingle and Jill Stringer
5th - 12th May 2018
George Bernard Shaw's scathing comedy about social hypocrisy and the
excesses of capitalism. Mrs. Kitty Warren worked her way out of the
London slums and now lives abroad, having provided her daughter Vivie
with the education and means to grow into a smart, independent young
woman of strong convictions. When Mrs. Warren returns, mother and
daughter discover that neither is the woman they thought they knew.
This provocative comedy was written in 1893. It was originally banned
by the Lord Chamberlain and eventually performed in 1902.
