The Daughter-in-Law completes its run

Here are a selection of reviews from our current production The Daughter In Law

rv. An enjoyable aspect of Chris Honer’s fine production is the humour gained from Lawrence’s depiction of Manchester as the immoral seat of Mammon from where Minnie acquired her hoity-toity ideas.
rn. The Guardian

rv. It is totally appropriate that this play is being performed a century after it was set and top marks to the Library Company for tackling a difficult play with such honesty, integrity and a mine full of talent.
rn. Daily Post

rv. Five out of five. The play introduces a freshness and modernity to a tale written long ago underlining a universal humanity which doesn’t date and makes this an unmissable production.

rv. This production offers a fascinating insight into the mind and work of one of Britain’s best known authors, and least performed playwrights, and, in the hands of Honer, the production is pacy, witty and offers up real moments of brilliance. The Daughter-in-Law vividly takes you back a century, where, for two hours, you are happy to spend time in the company of this accomplished cast and strong production.

rv. Then there is the daughter-in-law, Minnie, played with great versatility by Natalie Grady. This is a miniature tour-de-force of performance revealing strong and sensitive mood swings and swift responses to the unfolding drama.

rv. the performances ooze authenticity and leave a lasting impression on those who witness them. Yet another triumph for one of the country’s most important theatre companies.

rv. This is another one of those stupendously good, must-see productions that the Library Theatre seem to specialise in.

rv. Honer directs deftly. He has a strong cast in which Alun Raglan and Natalie Grady capture splendidly the tension and feistiness of their troubled relationship.
