Rutherford and SonRoger Allam "shines" (The Guardian) in Githa Sowerby's drama set in an industrial northern town in the early 20th century, which follows formidable patriarch John Rutherford who runs his factory and home with a clenched iron fist. Justine Mitchell "is equally excellent" as his daughter Janet in this "splendid revival" (The Times) of the 1912 play about class, gender and generational warfare. Four stars all round.

About National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre

The Lyttelton is one of three theatres which make up the National Theatre. It was built in a proscenium style, but has thoroughly modern sightlines and acoustics. There really is no bad seat here as there are no circle rails or view-blocking pillars. More about National Theatre: Lyttelton Theatre
