The Charity That Began At Home
BY ST JOHN HANKIN
14 December 2011 — 4 February 2012
It is a house party with a difference.
Lady Dennison has learned the lesson preached by Mr Hylton, the founder of the Church of Humanity, that 'false hospitality is inviting people because you like them. True hospitality is inviting them because they'd like to be asked.' And although her daughter is of the same mind, she has a sister who thinks very differently.
This delightful 1905 comedy is the third play by St. John Hankin we have presented and follows the huge success of The Return of the Prodigal and The Cassilis Engagement.
