Skin Game, The by GALSWORTHY, John



A small play in three acts. A kind of comic tragedy. The plot tells the story of the interaction between two very different families in rural England just after the end of the First World War. Squire Hillcrist lives in the manor house where his family has lived for generations. He has a daughter, Jill, who is in her late teens; and a wife, Amy, as well as servants and retainers. He is old money, although his finances are at a bit of low ebb. The other family is the nouveau riche Hornblowers, headed by the single-minded and rich industrialist Hornblower, who throws old retainers the Jackmans out of their home (much to the Squires disgust), and who plans to surround the Hillcrists rural estate with factories.
