The Daughter-in-law

D H Lawrence

PaperBack (19 Sep 2002)
How is a woman ever to have a husband when the men all belong to their mothers?

During the miner's strike of 1912, newly-married Minnie discovers her husband Luther has made another woman pregnant. The drama reaches boiling point as Minnie struggles to reclaim her husband - not only from her rival but also from his formidable mother.

Best known as a great novelist, Lawrence was also a remarkable playwright, heir to and equal of Strindberg and Chekhov. His passionate belief in the power of intimacy and sexuality rings out in his finest play, one of the most memorable of the 20th century.

The Daughter-in-law was performed at the Young Vic Theatre, London, directed by David Lan in September 2002.
