When We Are Married by J.B. Priestley

14-18 November, ____.

Priestley’s premise is simple enough: three Yorkshire couples discover, as they are about to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary, that they were never legally married.

Social embarrassment is followed by a dawning awareness that their lives have been overturned. For the hen-pecked Herbert Soppitt it provides the chance to assert himself against his domineering spouse. But, for two of the women, it offers the prospect of liberation from stuffy and errant husbands.
