In “Mrs. Warren's Profession,” Vivie Warren is a promising young woman; a recent college graduate with a career waiting for her in London who has always had everything she's ever wanted because of the generosity of her mother. However, this mother - Mrs. Warren - is a mysterious woman whom Vivie barely knows. When her mother surprises Vivie on a visit with several of her friends, Vivie confronts her mother about her career and her past, and what follows is a free-wheeling argument about the relationships between family, gender, economy and morality. “Mrs. Warren's Profession,” first written in 1894 and not staged for another 10 years because of its controversial subject matter, still resonates over a hundred years later as one of the greatest plays written in the English language.
