The Case of Rebellious Susan
The Case of Rebellious Susan tells the story of a young woman whose reaction to her husband's infidelity astonishes her friends, her relations and her erring husband. Will the forces of conventional society, with its duality of moral standards, subdue Susan at the same time as they threaten to snuff out Elaine's threatened revolution among the telegraph workers of Clapham? Following the success last season of St John Hankin's play The Return of The Prodigal, we offer the centenary production of another neglected play from the same period. Henry Arthur Jones, author of The Silver King, the Lions and Mrs Dane's Defence, was a popular and prolific playwright with a career that began in 1870 and continued until his death in 1926. Another Orange Tree discovery to be relished. Auriol Smith won a Time Out Award for this production.
