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.

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.

In Nottinghamshire, 1912, trouble is brewing in the mines – and simmering closer to home. When Mrs Gascoyne discovers an explosive secret about her newly-married son, it risks the hard-earned security of her daughter-in-law. But Minnie Gascoyne isn’t going to settle without a fight.

Jack Gamble’s in-the-round staging tears down the walls of the Gascoyne family home, and exposes Lawrence’s remarkable characters to a world approaching boiling point.
