Caroline Quentin and her daughter, Rose Quentin, are to play mother and daughter in a new touring production of George Bernard Shaw’s Mrs Warren’s Profession.

The revival, directed by Anthony Banks, will be presented by the Theatre Royal Bath in its main house from 9 to 19 November 2022 before touring the UK.

The two Quentins will play Mrs Warren and her daughter, Vivie, who finds out the startling truth about her mother’s business empire and the source of the money that has supported them.

Written in 1894, the play was banned for 30 years by the Lord Chamberlain’s Office which found it “immoral and improper”. It is described as a ripe attack on English hypocrisy and its “fashionable morality”.

Twice winner of the British Comedy Award for best comedy actress, Caroline Quentin’s many television roles have ranged from Men Behaving Badly, Kiss Me Kate and Jonathan Creek to Stephen Poliakoff’s Dancing on the Edge and the 2020 season of Strictly Come Dancing.

Shortly after graduating in 2019, Rose Quentin starred in the horror film York Witches Society and created the role of Katrina Van Tassel on tour in the stage version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow with Wendi Peters and Bill Ward.

The creative team also includes designer David Woodhead. Further cast and creatives as well as the touring venues and dates are yet to be announced.

Tickets will be on sale for the Theatre Royal Bath run from 15 April 2022.
