Written in 1893, Mrs. Warren’s Profession skewers the hypocrisy of British society. The wealthy, respectable title character’s “profession” is the world’s oldest, but Mrs. Warren is unprepared for the reaction of her daughter Vivie when she discovers her mother’s occupation. Shaw brings new life to the woman-with-a-past theme with wit and a defense of his heroine.
