Outdoor Theatre: Mrs Warren's Profession

With his home at the backdrop, The Shaw Society are proud to sponsor an exciting new production of the infamous Bernard Shaw play, Mrs Warren's Profession, from award-winning theatre company SHAW2020.

  • Booking essential

Mrs Warren's Profession is a provocative play that premiered in 1893. Controversial subject matters that challenged prevailing moral attitudes of the time, led to it being banned until 1902.

Delving into the complex relationship between a mother and her daughter as they grapple with issues of morality, social expectations, and the economic constraints faced by women in the Victorian era, Shaw's sharp, witty observations and biting, social commentary make Mrs Warren's Profession a thought-provoking classic that is decades ahead of its time.

This production is sponsored by the Shaw Society, a charitable organisation dedicated to promoting the legacy and appreciation of George Bernard Shaw's contributions to literature and theatre. The collaboration between SHAW2020 and the Shaw Society underscores their commitment to keeping Shaw's legacy alive and engaging modern audiences with the enduring themes embedded in his work.

July 26 and 27 2024. The performance starts at 6.30pm and ends at 9.00pm. Tickets are £22 per person.

IMPORTANT INFO: Please note this is an open-air production, please bring a low backed seat or floor rug. This ticket is non-refundable unless the show is cancelled due to dangerous weather. The performance will continue in the rain, so please bring hooded rain coats but avoid using umbrellas as they block the view of others. Doors will open approximately 1 hour before the performance. Thank you.
