Mint, known for its mission of excavating long-forgotten works, originally produced The Daughter-in-Law in 2003—a production that remains one of the company's most successful with a four-month extension and two Drama Desk nominations. Lawrence penned the work—a story of a marriage strained by class conflict during the 1912 coal strike in Nottinghamshire—around 1913, but it was never produced in his lifetime. The play first appeared in print in a 1965 complete edition of Lawrence's plays. The world premiere stage production followed three years later at The Royal Court.
Joining Platt is the original 2003 creative team including set designer Bill Clarke, costume designer Holly Poe Durbin, lighting designer Jeff Nellis, sound designer Lindsay Jones, and dialect coach Amy Stoller. Stephanie Klapper will serve as casting director.
