Here is the synopsis that accompanied the National Theatre’s revival of the play in 2019. In a northern industrial town, John Rutherford rules both factory & family with an iron will. But even as the furnaces burn relentlessly at the glassworks, at home his children begin to turn against him. Githa Sowerby’s astonishing play was inspired by her own experience of growing up in a family-run factory in Gateshead. Writing in 1912, when female voices were seldom heard on British stages, she now claims her place alongside Ibsen & Bernard Shaw with this searing depiction of class, gender & generational warfare.
