Included in the National Theatre's list: The 100 Most Significant Plays of the 20th Century

London, 1912: Rutherford and Son, a new play by an unknown playwright, “K.G. Sowerby,” has burst onto the scene, shattering box office records and drawing lofty accolades from critics, who are calling it the best play to premiere on the west end in 10 years, and comparing the author to theatrical titans like Ibsen. When it’s revealed that the play’s author is, shockingly, a woman named Githa Sowerby, she becomes the story, and her shattering tale of a tyrannical capitalist who loses his grip on his children is all but forgotten. As far as we can tell, UW Drama will only be the third theatre in the U.S. to ever present this transformational work of contemporary feminist drama. Be assured, time has only sharpened Sowerby's withering excoriation of the golden age of patriarchy. The New York Post called a 2001 production "alive with human passions and tyrannies.” Do not miss this theatrical event!
