Jane Clegg archiveLondon, 1913. Travelling salesman Henry Clegg has taken his wife, Jane, for granted for most of their marriage, as she endures his dishonesty, infidelity and neglect, as well as his demanding mother. ??But when Henry is accused of embezzling money from his firm and his latest affair is revealed, Jane realises she must finally escape her life of domestic abuse for herself and her children...only to find that for women without money and connections breaking free isn't so easy. Written in 1913 at the height of the campaign for votes for women, Jane Clegg premiered at Manchester's famous Gaiety Theatre, before transferring to the Royal Court Theatre - where it was compared to Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House. Dame Sybil Thorndike created the title role and performed it all over the world, including in a BBC Radio broadcast in 1967. The first London production for over 75 years. A 1913 tale of one woman's escape from an abusive relationship, originally compared by critics to A Doll's House.
