Mrs. Warren's Profession April 22-27, 2014
The Rickshaw Theatre
Vancouver, BC
Share this event:



A young woman discovers her privileged lifestyle was paid for by her mother's sex work. The two women enter a battle royal over what it means to be a modern woman, a working woman, and just plain be a woman.

Written in 1893 by Nobel and Oscar winning George Bernard Shaw, Mrs. Warren's Profession was originally banned for over 30 years. Alley Theatre invites you to a post-modern revisitation of this famous play with immersive staging and live music by Juno Award-winning musicians at the historic and hip Rickshaw Theatre.

"In Shaw's stringent social comedy, Mrs. Warren is utterly of her times ... and our times too." - The New York Times

Directed by MARISA SMITH, winner of the Joanna Maratta Award for "displaying the most potential to contribute to the Vancouver theatre community".

Featuring LINDA QUIBELL, MELISSA OEI, DANIEL ARNOLD, TOM PICKETT, ERICK KEENLEYSIDE and RICK TAE | Set Design by LAUCHLIN JOHNSTON | Lighting Design by EUGENE MENDELEV | Costume Design by NITA BOWERMAN | Improvised Composition and Live Music by SHANTO ACHARIA, MEREDITH BATES and ELISA THORN

Produced by ALLEY THEATRE, the company that brought Vancouver audiences TAPE at the Waldorf Hotel (two Jessie nominations including Outstanding Production), WICKED SHORTS at the Wicked Cafe (The Cultchivating Award), and KAYAK (GayVancouver's "Best Shows of 2013").

Produced in Association with NEWORLD THEATRE and RENEGADE ARTS COMPANY, and in Community Partnership with WISH DROP-IN CENTRE and PACE SOCIETY, both of whom provide support for women in need in the Downtown Eastside.
