The Stepmother

The Stepmother

Synopsis

'We’re married people aren’t we? What’s yours is mine.'
 
1924. A comfortable house in Surrey. When the orphaned Lois Relph accepts a marriage proposal from an older man, Eustace Gaydon, she believes she’s been rescued from an uncertain future. Establishing a successful business as a dress designer, Lois leaves her fortune in her husband’s hands.
 
But when one of her devoted step-daughters needs her help, Lois is forced to address what drew Eustace to her in the first place - and, at last, to face the dark truth at the heart of her marriage.
 
This gripping drama is a searing look at manipulation, money and matrimony. What price a woman’s autonomy within a man’s world?
 
There is a possibility that the captioning for this performance will be provided on a handheld tablet – please ask Box Office for further details.
