In 1880s London, ex-suffragette Mary Barfoot runs a secretarial school with her lover Rhoda. But when spinster sisters and a charismatic man named Everard show up, politics and passion erupt as each character must confront their professed ideals. Jennifer Brewin tackles this bold look at Victorian desire from the late great Canadian playwright Linda Griffiths. This play swirls with revolution, eroticism, intelligence, and feminism. A modern classic from one of our greatest theatre makers. (
