By Somerset Maugham
6th – 12th February 1980
Director Geoffrey Hool
A Workington Playgoers Production
“Women will only be the equal of men when she earns her living in the same way that he does”
“The young men of the present day are very casual”
These are not the utterances of today’s dissidents but quotations from The Circle written just after the First World War. It is not a moralising play, however, bit it does revolve around another problem just as relevant today as it was then.
The Circle has been produced in London in 1921, 1931, 1945 and 1975 and on every occasion the critics re-affirm their belief that this is one of Somerset Maugham’s best plays.
