Richmond Theatre

November 22-26 - Mrs Warren's Profession

Caroline Quentin and her real-life daughter Rose Quentin star in George Bernard Shaw's acid test of a mother-daughter relationship.

Written in 1894 but banned for thirty years by a Lord Chamberlain who found it 'immoral and improper', Mrs Warren's Profession is a ripe attack on English hypocrisy and its 'fashionable morality'.

Mrs Warren's daughter Vivie has never really known much about her mother. How will Vivie react when she finds out the startling truth about her mother's business empire and the origins of money that has financed her comfortable upbringing.



Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond                                                                      

Until January 14 - Arms and the Man

In the midst of a bloody central European war, a chance moonlit encounter throws together an idealistic young woman and a Swiss mercenary with an unexpectedly realistic attitude to soldiering.

Raina's youthful love for Sergius, the swashbuckling fighting hero of the Bulgarian army, is challenged when she learns more of the realities of war.

George Bernard Shaw's delightful romantic comedy was one of his first commercial successes and remains enduringly relevant.

Paul Miller directs in his final production as Artistic Director of the Orange Tree.


OSO Arts Centre, Barnes

November 26 – Playboy

Lord Christian Brighty is the country's most notorious rake.

He puts the bi in Byron, the don in hedonism, and the key in chastity belts. But when this saucy libertine falls for a Duchess, can he reform himself?

Forget Bridgerton. Forget Austen. This is the greatest love story you'll ever laugh at. Prepare to swoon for the debut solo show from TikTok's answer to Mr Darcy (@brightybuoy).
