Written in 1912 during the upsurge of the British feminist movement, this powerful play deals with the oppressive patriarchal system of the industrial North at that time.
Rutherford is the hard tyrannical master of both his glassworks and his family, who, blind to his children’s hopes, has bullied and undermined them without questioning that one day they will take over the business.
This is the story of a family on the brink of collapse.
This was the Society's Diamond Jubilee production. It was also the amateur theatre premiere of the play.
