About this show

Censored for eight years before finally being produced in 1902, Shaw's provocative comedy Mrs. Warren's Profession illuminates the struggle for women to obtain a decent standard of living versus the choice of morally acceptable roads to that goal. Intelligent and independent, young Vivie Warren has enjoyed a secure upbringing, a Cambridge education, and a generous monthly allowance. Her world is shattered when she discovers the truth about her mother's profession which has provided her comfortable life.
