Plays of John Galsworthy: The Silver Box, Joy and Strife
1909. English novelist and playwright, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1932, Galsworthy became known for his portrayal of the British upper middle class and for his social satire. His plays often took up specific social grievances such as the double standard of justice as applied to the upper and lower classes in his first real success, The Silver Box, and the confrontation of capital and labor in Strife. Joy is the story of a young girl, aptly named Joy and what happens on the day she discovers that the mother, who is the center of her universe, is herself orbiting around someone else.
