3 and half out of 4 stars!~ The Buffalo News

Thought Provoking Shaw Shines with new Theatre Alliance in Buffalo ~

Produced by the Shaw Festival

Can Shaw still shock you? We think so. Kitty Warren has worked hard to provide for her daughter and now that Vivie is about to strike out on her own, her mother decides it’s time for her feminist daughter to finally learn the truth about her profession. A contemporary look at a classic play that still challenges our notions of motherhood and the business of sex. Originally banned from public performance, it was first staged at a private men’s club and the production in New York led to arrests. Shaw himself said about the play, “Ah, when I wrote that, I had some nerve.”

Adult content and themes. This show is recommended for ages 15+.
Running time is approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes including one intermission.
