A new look at the oldest profession

When George Bernard Shaw first tried to show his play Mrs Warren's Profession in the late 1890s, the Lord Chamberlain banned it because of its content - prostitution. The first production was in 1902 in a London members only club....there was no public performance in England until 1925! Mrs Warren's Profession's notoriety has faded, but the themes Shaw explored - women being underpaid and under-valued - certainly haven't.
