The Stepmother

By Githa Sowerby Directed by Rosemary Nice"A man must be prepared to support his wife in the style to which she has been accustomed" A play about a respectable home in leafy Chilworth, a working wife and mother, a full-time job and an inheritance and written by a feminist woman in 1924. This is a remarkable rediscovered piece and as relevant for our day as it was for Githa Sowerby’s.

Learn about the woman who broke through prejudice to write two major masterpieces - one of which had sensational West End and New York success - and the other which was lost in a drawer for 80 years ...until recently.
