Mrs. Warren’s Profession

by George Bernard Shaw

Directed by Julia Traber

October 4 through October 22, 2017

Classical Theatre Company returns to the great George Bernard Shaw for the first time since producing the smash hit Candida back in 2011. Regarded by many to be the second finest author in the English language, Shaw is well known for his wordsmithing and wit. His keen ear and ability to recreate voices of those he encountered and brought to life on the page and stage are without peer.

First performed in 1902, Mrs. Warren’s Profession shows us the life of a middle-aged woman, Mrs. Kitty Warren, a former prostitute and current brothel madam, as she becomes acquainted with her grown daughter, Vivie, for the first time in her life. Vivie, a recent University of Cambridge graduate is horrified to learn what her mother does for her profession, and the audience sees how this realization changes the dynamic of their relationship and brings to light the role of professional women in the Western world.
