After several weeks of rehearsals, Mrs. Warren's Profession opened on Friday, February 12 at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre in Hayward, California. The play, a George Bernard Shaw classic written in 1893, is a compelling and enduring exploration of the "oldest profession" and the plight of women, which is just as relevant today as it was in the nineteenth century. Emily plays Vivie Warren, a modern, college-educated, highly principled young woman who reunites with her estranged mother to learn about her past. She is ecstatic to work with local favorite and Theatre Bay Area Award-winning actress Celia Maurice as Mrs. Warren, as well as Nathaniel Andalis, John Baldwin, Craig Souza, and Tom Reilly.
Mrs. Warren's Profession is Emily's first full production in the Bay Area. It's been well-received in its opening weekend by enthusiastic audiences and critics alike. A review from Vince Mediaa states, "[Celia] Maurice and [Emily] Scott are riveting in the family power struggle." Mrs. Warren's Profession can be seen for the next three weekends at Douglas Morrisson Theatre. Be sure to purchase tickets and catch Emily's Bay Area theatre debut!
