Hindle Wakes, by Stanley Houghton, was written in 1910. Set at the height of the woman suffrage movement, Hindle Wakes is a humorous look at social mores 108 years ago. The center of the play is an unmarried young couple, a mill worker, and the son of the mill owner, who take off for a weekend of fun. Despite their best efforts, their parents find out. Reputations are soiled; marriage is on the horizon. 

What makes Hindle Wakes shine is Fanny, the young woman. She was a woman ahead of her time, and she'll have none of it. She will steal your heart.

Hindle Wakes caused quite a scandal in 1912. Nevertheless, the play was reprinted eight times.
