Mrs. Warren’s Profession

Mrs. Warren’s Profession

Modern parallels abound in the plight of Cambridge-educated mathematics wiz Vivie Warren, who discovers that her comfortable upbringing was financed in unspeakable ways. Shaw pits a clever heroine against a memorable gallery of rogues in this superbly intelligent comedy, banned for eight years from the English stage.

An L.A. Theatre Works full cast performance featuring:

Paul Gutrecht as Frank Gardner
Kaitlin Hopkins as Vivie Warren
Shirley Knight as Mrs. Warren
Basil Langton as Reverend Gardner
Dakin Matthews as Sir Crofts
Robin Sachs as Praed

Includes an interview with Eda Holmes, the Associate Director of the Shaw Festival Theatre in Ontario, Canada.

Directed by Nicholas Rudall. Recorded live before an audience at the DoubleTree Suites, Santa Monica in March of 1996.
