The 1922 play is filled with drama and suspense. It is about a huge sum of money that was stolen in a fashionable aristocratic home from a guest who was not of the aristocratic class. The loyalties manifest themselves in this play in many ways: loyalty to one’s race, social class, spouse, legal profession, sense of honor, and the inability to overcome a decision once it is made and to put aside prejudices.
John Galsworthy (1867-1933) was one of the most outstanding English novelists and dramatists of his time. He was a lawyer, but never practiced law. He despised the English upper-class treatment of those “below them,” although this was the class to which he belonged. He usually gave away half of his income.
He published nineteen novels and is most famous for his Forsyth novels. He wrote twenty full-length plays and a number of shorter ones as well as short stories. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932.
His plays follow the style of the Norwegian Henrik Ibsen (1828-1906) and the Irish George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) in presenting social issues, which prompted viewers to think about the issues raised in the plays. They were not “light entertainment,” the style of plays in modern times before these playwrights.
