Mrs Warren’s Profession

  • Show Information

Vivie Warren, a young Cambridge graduate is horrified to learn that her education and entire luxurious life-style has been financed by her mother’s career in the world’s oldest profession.
Due to its frank portrayal of Mrs Warren’s Profession, this groundbreaking play was originally banned in England by the Lord Chamberlain. Written in 1894, it was not allowed a public performance for the next thirty years and during its first performance in New York, the police stopped the play and arrested the cast!
Bernard Shaw’s period drama is full of insight and humane understanding and ranks as one of his masterpieces, alongside Pygmalion, Saint Joan and Man and Superman.
