APRIL 22 – 27, 2014 LIVE @ THE RICKSHAW THEATRE
254 E Hastings St
A privileged young woman discovers her comfortable lifestyle was paid for by her mother’s sex work. The two women enter a battle royal over what it means to be a modern woman, a working woman, and just plain be a woman.
Written in 1893 by Nobel and Oscar winning George Bernard Shaw, the play was banned for over 30 years. Alley Theatre’s postmodern revisitation of this controversial classic merges theatre, live music, interactive media and the politics of the sex trade. Bring your drink into the theatre, text secret messages to a projection screen, and be immersed in a created-space environment at the hip and historic Rickshaw Theatre.TICKETS
