By Cicely Hamilton
Directed by Graeme Somerville

With her 30th birthday approaching, Georgiana Vicary is feeling the pressure to wed. Her friends and family expect her to get married and more importantly, she expects it of herself. But will shy Adam Lankester pluck up his courage to propose marriage to her and more importantly will she accept?

Written in 1911 and still packing a powerful punch, playwright Cicely Hamilton exposes the difficulties Edwardian women lived with and the struggles of achieving true independence.
