★★★★ “Arguably the best account of working-class life in British drama. Jack Gamble’s revival, strongly cast and steeped in authentic east Midlands dialect, does it full justice … A first-rate revival of a major play.” — The Guardian
Following a sold-out first run, and three Off West End award nominations, The Daughter-in-Law transfers to Arcola Studio 1 for four weeks only.
In Nottinghamshire, 1912, trouble is brewing in the mines – and simmering closer to home.
When Mrs Gascoyne discovers an explosive secret about her newly-married son, it risks the hard-earned security of her daughter-in-law. But Minnie Gascoyne isn’t going to settle without a fight.
Arcola Associate Director Jack Gamble directs a new, in-the-round staging of D H Lawrence’s groundbreaking play – the first in London for over 15 years.
