About this show

Novelist D.H. Lawrence's powerful 1911 play, The Daughter-in-Law is presented by the award-winning Mint Theater - New York's Premier Theatrical Restoration Company. Martin L. Platt directs. Set against the background of a pit strike, it tells the story of Luther Gascoigne, a young miner, and his newly wed wife Minnie, a former governess. The tensions and misunderstandings they suffer as a result of their different backgrounds are exacerbated by the powerful influence of Luther's mother, and brought to open conflict when it is discovered that Luther, before his marriage, has made another woman pregnant.
