A fresh take on Shaw’s controversial drama. Young Vivie Warren, emancipated, intelligent, and self-sufficient is astounded to learn her mother rose from poverty to riches through prostitution—and also that she is now part owner and operator of a chain of brothels. Mrs. Warren ably justifies her past—attacking a hypocritical society that rewards vice and oppresses virtue. Vivie, respecting her mother’s courage, accepts her past but will she accept her present?

directed by Michael D. Graham
