A post-modern staging of Shaw’s classic play at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. Mrs. Warren has been secretly working as a prostitute and brothel owner in order to put her daughter Vivie through the best schools, and to give her all the luxuries she could never afford. When the well-educated and thoroughly “modern” Vivie learns of her mother’s profession, the two women enter a battle-royale over what it means to be a modern woman, a working woman, and to just plain be a woman.
