It takes a confirmed spinster to be as sentimental as you are. What’s to happen to me if I don’t marry – what’s to be the end of me?

Approaching her 30th birthday in early 20th Century England, the clever and poor Georgiana Vicary is waiting for the handsome but shy Adam Lankester to propose to her. 

Her friends expect her to get married, her adoptive parents expect it and more importantly, she expects it of herself – but will her conscience allow it?

The renowned suffragette's play asks how we can have a marriage of equals when the genders are unequal.

“Cracking examination of the ‘marriage business’... Involving... Dunne’s production keeps us gripped... Best catch this now.”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“A century after its last staging this is very much a period piece, but its themes still resonate in a terrific production.”

Ann Treneman (Times)

“A voice speaking directly from the past... Quinn and McPherson play together delicately... Intensity burns through the speeches.”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Quinn, entrancing... Dunne's handsomely mounted production boasts a superb cast... Immensely engaging... Highly recommended.”

Alun Hood (What's On Stage)

“Still packing a powerful punch... Eminently worth reviving... Dunne’s production is well cast and full of attack.”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)

“Welcome rediscovery of Cicely Hamilton's witty subversion of the marriage plot.”

Julia Rank (The Stage)
