Mrs Kitty Warren has worked hard to provide for her daughter, but how will Vivie react when she learns the truth about her mother’s profession? The stage is set for a tale of duplicity, love and morality.
Banned, censored and controversial during George Bernard Shaw’s lifetime, this play resonates in new ways for today’s audience. It shines a light on mother/daughter relationships and the values we hold dear. More than anything though, it is about social pressures and hypocrisy. It is a play fuelled by ideas of social and moral choices.
Shaw’s plays are known for their wit, brilliant arguments and unrelenting challenges to the conventional morality of his time.
