Frederic Wood Theatre

by Jacqueline Firkins, adapted from a novel by Elizabeth Gascell

HONESTY IS RELATIVE, BUT RELATIVES AREN’T ALWAYS HONEST.

Based on Elizabeth Gaskell’s 1860’s serial novel and adapted by UBC Theatre and Film Professor Jacqueline Firkins, Wives and Daughters tells the story of seventeen-year-old Molly, the daughter of a country doctor, whose life gets turned upside down when an overbearing stepmother and an impetuous stepsister move in, bringing with them a wealth of secrets and a unique talent for improving people. A feminist ahead of her time, Gaskell tackles the meaning of love, in all its forms, and the limitations society places on women as they pursue their desires.
