The story centers on the relationship between Mrs Kitty Warren, a rich woman, described by the author as "on the whole, a genial and fairly presentable old blackguard of a woman" and her daughter, Vivie.

very good

(4 Sterne)

This is very good. Praed's microphone can be annoying. Vivie's voice reminds me of Emma Watson, and Mrs. Warren of Rebecca Hall. The play is good. Lots of clever lines. Frank is funny.

All Around Great Listen

(5 Sterne)

This was a fantastic LibriVox production. Everyone did a great job. The only small thing I'd say wasn't quite as good as the rest was the slightly mechanical reading of Frank by Matthew Reece. He just didn't seem to emote in character like the other readers but by no means did he do a bad job. Now this is a great take on feminism. As usual I highly enjoyed Shaw's biting wit bit this time I saw more in the play than an irreverent drawing room comedy. Perhaps because I'd read H.G. Wells' Ann Veronica: A Modern Love Story just days earlier, I saw the feminist side of this play so clearly. I absolutely love Vivie Warren. She is a wonderfully willful without being cruel or crass. She simply has her own code of conduct and will not compromise on her decisions. Her mother, Mrs. Kitty Warren, is also strong in her way, even if Vivie or the reader don't agree with her choices. She made a way for herself in a world that didn't seem to reward virtue and managed to give her daughter a college education, comfortable life
