Director: Polly Findlay; Written by: Githa Sowerby; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Roger Allam, Joe Armstrong, Harry Hepple, Barbara Marten, Justine Mitchell, Sally Rogers, Sam Troughton, Anjana Vasan

Roger Allam (Les Miserables, The Thick of It) will be playing Rutherford in this new production of Githa Sowerby's searing depiction of class, gender and generational warfare.

John Rutherford rules both his factory and family with an iron will. But as the furnaces burn relentlessly at the Glassworks, at home his children are beginning to turn against him...

Githa Sowerby’s play was inspired by her own experience of growing up in 1912, when female voices were seldom heard on the British stage.
