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.”

Minnie has big ambitions for her new marriage to Luther Gascoyne, but Luther’s mother Mrs Gascoyne has ideas of her own. When she discovers explosive news about one of Luther’s old flames, Mrs Gascoyne lays the battle-lines for an emotional struggle that could tear the whole family apart.

Set in the heat of the 1912 miners’ strike, The Daughter-in-Law is a searing and unforgettable drama about heartache, inequality and the ties that bind.

D H Lawrence’s groundbreaking play receives its first London staging in over 15 years.


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

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