Edward’s highly principled world is turned upside down when his father reveals that he has been illegally speculating with clients’ money. To make matters worse, he soon discovers his large, scandal-fearing family would perpetuate the crime rather than risk public dishonour. This magnificently observed, hugely enjoyable portrait of an upper-middle-class family was written by the father of 20th-century British theatre, Harley Granville Barker, ten years before the First World War finally sent old values flying.

Running time: 2 hours 25 minutes, including a 15 minute interval.
