ABOUT THE PLAY:
THE DAUGHTER IN-LAWDH Lawrence's rarely seen play The Daughter-in-Law,
continues the Library Theatre Company’s highly successful residency at
The Lowry in Salford. The production, which will be directed by Chris Honer, the company’s Artistic Director.
Luther Gascoigne, a Nottinghamshire miner, and socially ambitious Minnie have been married for just six weeks. Luther’s mother disapproves; in her view Minnie’s pretensions make her an unsuitable match for her son. When an explosive revelation from Luther’s past is unexpectedly revealed, it threatens to derail the married couple’s new life together.
Set in 1912 against the backdrop of a bitter miners’ strike, The Daughter-in-Law, which was never performed in its author’s lifetime, is an unjustly neglected classic drama. Full of passion, sexual tension, and class conflict, The Daughter-in-Law affirms DH Lawrence, more commonly known for his novels and poetry, as a playwright of the first order.
