Theater: Diana of Dobson's
by Cecily Hamilton


Cicely Hamilton An actor, activist and contemporary of George Bernard Shaw, Cicely Hamilton penned the lyrics for the suffragette anthem and dozens of popular plays that receive practically no consideration today. Diana of Dobsonís, which appeared in 1908, is one of the best.
It's about country girls fleeing to the city to improve their lot only to be captured by rapacious merchants in the cities. It exposes the iniquities of the shop-girl system -- a form of bonded slavery in which the live-in sales assistants of large department stores were poorly fed, underpaid and entirely beholden to the companies that employed them.
