Background


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, never performed in his lifetime, entwines the struggles of a young married couple with those of a community on strike.


Following a sold-out first run, and three Off West End award nominations, The Daughter-in-Law transfers to Arcola Studio 1 for four weeks only.


Public booking opens at 12.30pm on Monday 3 September.


Arcola Supporters can book now.
