Mrs. Warren's Profession

In this witty and provocative comedy, George Bernard Shaw tests the bonds between a mother and daughter in a battle of sex, money and morality. Determined to have a comfortable life, Mrs. Warren refuses to take the dangerous, menial and underpaid jobs available to women of the 19th century.

Emily Mann’s beautiful, complexly informed production at the McCarter Theater… makes the world views of Shaw and Michael Patrick Wilson seem so attuned…an entertaining coterie of male characters brought to life in… the fresh-faced young Frank Gardner (Michael Izquierdo), Vivie’s devoted sweetheart.”
