The Stepmother by Githa Sowerby
It’s 1911. What do you do if you’re a nineteen year-old girl in need of care and support? What do you do when a much older widower, with two young daughters, offers you kindness and security? And what do you do, ten years later, when you begin to realise you have been betrayed?
In the character of Lois Relph, Githa Sowerby has created a truly modern woman, juggling the demands of children, business and conscience at a time when the pace of social and technological change is fast and getting faster…
Written in 1924 (by the writer of Rutherford & Son) and revived in 2013 at The Orange Tree Theatre, to huge acclaim, The Stepmother is a sensational rediscovery, brought to Yorkshire for the first time by York Settlement Community Players.
