The Heiress by Ruth & Augustus Goetz

The daughter of a widowed, wealthy surgeon, Catherine Sloper lacks both social graces and beauty. She falls head over heels in love with the handsome but penniless Morris Townsend, the first man to ever pay her any attention. She believes her love is reciprocated, but Dr Sloper is convinced that the young man is interested in one thing only – Catherine’s fortune, and so he threatens to disinherit Catherine if she marries Townsend.

Adapted from the novel Washington Square by Henry James, the tragi-comedy, set in opulent 1850s New York, is a classic story of forbidden love and intrigue about its motives.

Multitudes by John Hollingworth

For Services Rendered by W. Somerset Maugham

After WWI the men came home as heroes, but now 14 years have passed. Blinded by a gas attack, Sydney spends his time knitting. His sister, whose fiancé never came home, devotes herself to his care.

Collie spent 20 years in the navy, but commanding a destroyer hasn’t prepared him to manage a business. And war hero Howard has gone back to being a tenant farmer and drinks heavily; his wife can only console herself with their children. War has changed Britain, and now the Ardsley family must face that change.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.

Not About Heroes by Stephen MacDonald

The friendship of Siegfried Sassoon and Wilfred Owen

They fought on the Western Front and met as patients in a military hospital in 1917. Owen was in awe of Sassoon – as a poet and a soldier. Sassoon became his mentor, and their brief but close friendship stimulated an intense period of creativity.

They spoke out against the patriotism of war, and brought to light the horror of the trenches. Being in a military hospital without a visible wound, Owen felt he had to prove he wasn’t a coward. In August 1918 he returned to the front line.

Daily at 7.45pm (excl. Sun/Mon); Sunday at 2.30pm

The Questors Theatre, 12 Mattock Lane W5 5BQ.
From £7
