THE STEPMOTHER by Githa Sowerby from 1924 tackles the tensions of female independence in a patriarchal society. This recently rediscovered play has been seen in London but, as far as we know, this will be its New York premiere. The plot follows a young woman fighting to create a life for herself.

“Gingold Theatrical Group provides an invaluable — and unique — service to New Yorkers. Not only does it keep topnotch productions of great works of art before the public on a regular basis as no other theater company can, but it also does something less obvious. It keeps the tradition of intelligent argument, embodied in Shaw’s plays but otherwise much lacking from public discourse, alive for those who need it most: the thinking people of a great city.” — Jesse Green, New York Magazine.
