Mrs. Warren's Profession

Mrs. Warren's Profession

What price independence? George Bernard Shaw built his life on controversy, determined to be the voice of empowerment for the disenfranchised. In a world where women have no legal rights, his play Mrs. Warren's Profession examines a woman who, coming from nothing, has become one of the most wealthy and powerful of executives running an international string of high-class brothels, keeping her life hidden from her daughter. Only when the truth is revealed does the house of cards topple.

In this infamous comedy/drama, George Bernard Shaw brings us his most provocative play, which examines how six people face their past to plan for their future, including the mysterious title character who has built a global empire from the ground up.

Come experience the provocative play that, in its world debut in New York in 1905, the entire cast was arrested on opening night! With a glorious cast by the most amusing and insightful playwright in the English language, the always rascally George Bernard Shaw.

Our Mrs. Warren's Profession Review

Mrs. Warren’s Profession, George Bernard Shaw’s tart and tangy play about prostitution — and more — written in 1893 and first performed in 1902, looks good for its age.
