Arcola Theatre and Dippermouth

The Daughter-in-Law

by D H Lawrence

Directed by Jack Gamble

“Children they are, these men, but my word, they’re revengeful children.”

A marriage on the rocks. A community under pressure.

The Daughter-in-Law is D H Lawrence’s groundbreaking play about sex and inequality in the shadow of the Nottinghamshire mines.

Radical for its sensitive and honest portrayal of working-class life, it was never published or performed in Lawrence’s lifetime.

This searing production – the first in London for over 15 years – is staged in the round and underground at Arcola Theatre.

 

“It is quite extraordinary … one of the great British dramas of the 20th century” – The Guardian

“One of the unsung masterpieces of English drama” – The Telegraph


Post-show discussion – Thursday 31 May 2018
With the director and members of the company. Free for same-day ticket-holders.
