A Richard B. Sessoms Visiting Artists Fund. Written by George Bernard Shaw in 1893, Mrs. Warren's Profession is a play centering on the relationship between Mrs. Kitty Warren and her daughter, Vivie. But, as one might expect in a Shaw play, this is not a normal mother/daughter bonding since Mrs. Warren is a highly successful madam with a string of highly successful "hotels" throughout western Europe. This success has allowed her, much to her daughter's discovery and dismay, to give Vivie a Cambridge education. The two have the benefit of a brief reconciliation where morality is tossed about like a game of cricket, for Vivie believes that her mother's dastardly deeds have come to an end. Mrs. Warren, however, can't seem to let the profits go.
