Mrs. Warren's Profession

with Emerson Stage

by George Bernard Shaw

directed by Rebecca Bradshaw


Mrs. Kitty Warren, a former prostitute and current brothel owner, is described as "on the whole, a genial and fairly presentable old blackguard of a woman."  Her daughter, Vivie, an intelligent and pragmatic young woman who has just graduated from university, has come home to get acquainted with her mother for the first time in her life. The play focuses on how their relationship changes when Vivie learns what her mother does for a living. At the same time, Vivie is being presented to suitors to only challenge her duty to marry.
