Set in New York City in the 1850s, The Heiress is an adaptation of Henry James’ novel, Washington Square. The play is the story of a shy and plain woman, Catherine Sloper, who has been raised by a cold, difficult physician father who finds her lacking in every way. When a young man, Morris Townsend, finds his way into Catherine’s heart, her successful father is sure he is a fortune hunter. Catherine’s search for herself and her place in society, as well as her relationship with both of these men, is at the heart of The Heiress.
