REVIEW: Mrs Warren's Profession at the Everyman Theatre Cheltenham


The hypocrisy of English high society and the strained relationship of a mother and a daughter is put on full display in 'Mrs Warren’s Profession', an enduring and still-relevant play written in 1894. Now starring Caroline Quentin and her daughter, Rose Quentin, we saw and loved the play at the ever-gorgeous Everyman Theatre in Cheltenham.



Caroline Quentin is always a gem to watch perform. As the titular Mrs Warren, she channels the same exuberant energy and penchant for heartfelt drama from her most recent theatre performance as the bubbly Mrs Malaprop in 'Jack Absolute Flies Again'. Her performance here commands the stage with hilarious facial expressions and wails of indignation as her own daughter condemns her for her past career.

Rose Quentin plays Mrs Warren’s daughter Vivie with a posh, prudish, no-nonsense air. The exchanges between Vivie and Mrs Warren are the highlight of the show. The characters clash beautifully, exchanging wounding words at one moment but sharing heartfelt confessions the next. Their differences are just as compelling as their similarities, namely their minds for business and their struggle to be seen as professionals in a male-dominated world.



Many of our fellow audience members commented on the wonderful staging of the play. The props and sets portrayed the quaint, quiet English countryside, and the sets changed with particularly clever scene transitions. The costumes were also lovely, contrasting once again Mrs Warren’s old-fashioned sentiments with Vivie’s modern trail-blazing style.


If you’re in the mood for a heartfelt character drama with some sparkling comedic moments set in the beautiful English countryside, don’t miss 'Mrs Warren’s Profession' at the Everyman Theatre, running until 25th March.
