About The Show

In my life, I’ve always done what I’ve wanted.

Three years after leaving her unfaithful husband and striking out as an artist, Agnes receives his letter ordering her home. But Agnes married young; her innocence has gone and her ambition is growing. Fleeing to France to find a new future, pursued by the besotted Alec and worldly-wise Otho, can Agnes seize the chance to shape her own life?

Hailed as a long-lost masterpiece, Harley Granville Barker's compelling exploration of love, sexual attraction and independence was written in 1900 and unearthed in the British Library a century later.

Former Artistic Director of the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre, Sir Trevor Nunn, directs.
