Windows, The Finborough Theatre
Celebrating the 150th birthday of novelist and playwright John Galsworthy, the first professional UK production in 85 years of Windows by John Galsworthy opens at the Finborough Theatre for a three week limited season.

Described by John Galsworthy as “a comedy for idealists and others”, Windows is a fascinating exploration of class and of a generation struggling to catch up with their lives in a world that has been altered forever by war.
