The Inheritors


The Inheritors
   Susan Glaspell's 1921 play opened on 21 March 1921 at the Provincetown Playhouse in New York and ran for 26 performances. Eva Le Gallienne directed a revival by her Civic Repertory Theatre, opening on 7 March 1927, for 21 performances. The action of the play spans three generations, from the pioneering settlers on the prairie in 1879 in act 1 to the remaining three acts set in 1920, with descendents at the college that was founded on the land and a granddaughter who questions the injustices she perceives.
