The wonderful Seattle Shakespeare Theater’s next play: Mrs. Warren’s Profession which promises to be entertaining and enlightening:

“In this witty and provocative work from George Bernard Shaw, a confrontation locks two strong, unconventional women in an elemental battle. Modern, educated Vivie Warren hasn’t seen her mother Kitty in years. So, when her mother pays her a surprise visit, and sheds some light on the ways in which she was able to sacrifice herself for the sake of her daughter, pulling her out of the London slums, Vivie discovers that Kitty is not the woman she thought she knew … and a battle of wills ensues. Make your way to Seattle’s Center Theatre for the delightfully heartbreaking comedy of Mrs. Warren’s Profession.”
