Voysey Inheritance - NT Lyttelton 06The discovery that his father has been dabbling in illegal practices throws Edward Voysey’s world upside down. The situation is compounded when he finds that his family, afraid of scandal, would rather perpetuate the crime than be shamed in public.

Harley Granville Barker, considered by many the father of 20th century British theatre, wrote The Voysey Inheritance ten years before World War One affected everyone’s values.
