About This Show

Suggested by Henry James’ novel Washington Square, Ruth and Augustus Goetz’s The Heiress takes us to the New York of the 1850s, where a shy and plain young girl falls desperately in love with a delightful young fortune hunter. Catherine’s lack of worldliness prevents her from realizing that the young man proposing to her is not entirely drawn to her by her charm. Catherine’s father, sensing a fortune hunter, forbids the marriage, but Catherine is determined to unite with her true love. The ensuing test of wills makes for a great family drama.

There are additional Sunday matinees on October 22, November 5 & 12 at 2pm.
