Poynton Park: A Play in Three Acts from the Novel The Spoils of Poynton by Henry James :
From The Spoils of Poynton, Henry James's riveting novel of courtship and marriage in Edwardian England, award-winning playwright Robert Manson Myers has fashioned a taut drama unfolding sharp tensions between a domineering mother and a vacillating son as inheritance of a magnificent country house thwarts a delicate courtship, precipitates a disastrous marriage, and propels events to a denouement at once devastating and bitterly ironic.
