Watch D H Lawrence’s tale of ‘ordinary life’, love and family that is set in the time of the mining strikes on 1912. This honest observation of class, sex, and politics is bound to be an unforgettable working-class drama.

Why Watch The Daughter-in-Law

The mining strike of 1912 was the first mining strike in British history, pushing the British government to establish minimum wages for the first time. Dated back to this event that is etched in history, this play is not only ‘entertaining’ but provides great perspective on society. This takes shape in the Gascoyne family home as an honest glimpse into the early 20th century’s obsession with class. This gripping play is bound to give you the perfect evening of English drama.

The Story

Lines are drawn and decisions are made for the Gascoyne family as they navigate through the unrest of 1912. Minnie, the daughter-in-law who takes center stage, fights to win her husband’s commitment while her watchful mother-in-law continues to dominate the household, making things look grim for Minnie. A newlywed couple, a mother in law and a secret shakes the Gascoyne household.

Critics Reviews

“It is 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.”
– The Guardian

“IThere is merit, perhaps, in seeing a slice-of-life working-class drama that was so ahead of its time, a forerunner of a genre that would eventually transform British theatre.”
– Exeunt Magazine
