mrs. warren's profession


"Pitch perfect... polished and full of the right kind of energy, which is to say it has sass, playfulness and satiric edge." - Chad Jones, Theatre Dogs

"From start to finish, [director Susannah] Martin consistently finds the 21st-century immediacy of Shaw's brutal observations on power, sex and money. Every elegant turn of phrase leads us back to the stinging accusation at the play's center." - Karen D’Souza, San Jose Mercury News

"Breathtakingly daring! Shocking indeed! Under director Susannah Martin's confident hand, Shotgun Players gives this simmering subversion a sturdy, well-acted production, on a stage set of ingeniously revolving rooms by Steve Decker." - Robert Hall, Piedmont Post

"By turns imperious, brash, and playful" - Sam Hurwitt, East Bay Express

"I was not prepared for relevant, pointed and brutally honest, timeless political & social commentary. But that is what I got." - Si, member


The Shotgun Players are staging George Bernard's scandalous 1890s play about a woman who makes a fortune as a proprietor of high-class brothels. Nothing timely about that subject, is there? - Contra Costa Times
