Portland Center Stage opens it’s ninth season with Mrs. Warren’s Profession by George Bernard Shaw, running at the Intermediate Theatre of the Portland Center for Performing Arts, October 25-November 16. The play, originally banned for eight years in 1894 England, follows the relationship between Mrs. Warren, who runs “hotels for businessmen,” and her practical young daughter Vivie. When Vivie discovers the true nature of her mother’s occupation, she engages her in a heart-shattering struggle for understanding.
Mrs. Warren’s Profession is the third Shaw play to open a season at PCS. It is directed by PCS Producing Artistic Director Elizabeth Huddle.
Tickets are $11-35, and can be purchased by calling (503) 274-6588.
