The Daughter-in-Law at Young Vic

A mother's control over her two adult sons is brought into question by a "new addition" to the family.

Amazingly directed, with equally impressive lighting and sound, The Daughter-in-Law, gives the honest truth about one coal mining family of Nottinghamshire. Matthew Dunster and Paul Hilton lead a talented cast as Joe and Luther, the sons of the displaced matriarch. Anne-Marie Duff's Minnie, the daughter-in-law, brings imperfections to light as she reforms the overbearing relationship of mother and son into something healthy.

Young Vic until Saturday 12 October
