Shaw’s Most Provocative and Incendiary Play Mrs. Warren’s Profession Comes To Theatre Row

Shaw’s Most Provocative and Incendiary Play Mrs. Warren’s Profession Comes To Theatre Row

We’re on stage in October!. From October 12 through November 20 @Theatre Row, 410 West 42nd Street, The Gringold Group will present Mrs. Warren’s Profession by Bernard Shaw. The cast includes Karen Ziemba as Mrs. Kitty Warren, Nicole King as Vivie Warren, Robert Cuccioli as Sir George Crofts, David Lee Huynh as Frank Gardner, Alvin Keith as Praed, Raphael Nash Thompson as Reverend Samuel Gardner with Katya Collazo and Max Roll understudying.

Mrs. Warren’s Profession was written in 1895 is about the struggle for equal rights, a topic for Shaw wrote about frequently. This early play of his was considered so incendiary in its time that it was banned for years in Britain and, when it finally debuted here in New York City, the entire cast was arrested on opening night. It’s not the plot point of prostitution that offended the officials, but the notion that a woman would struggle to create a successful life for herself in spite of the constraints set against her by law and society, and thrive without apology. With this, our third free online presentation, we have a dream cast to bring you this highly entertaining story involving a mother and daughter who, for the first time, reveal their true self to each other. The issue of women’s rights permeates all of Shaw’s work and perhaps never, before or since, has the topic been more explosively examined.
