Agnes Colander was written in 1900 by Harley Granville Barker, who also penned The Voysey Inheritance and Waste.

The witty and compelling comedy of love, sexual attraction and independence was unearthed in recent years and is now going to be staged at the Ustinov Studio in Bath this month.

Agnes is an artist who has left her unfaithful husband.

He continues to write to her, begging for reconciliation but Agnes is enjoying her new-found freedom.
