by Ruth and Augustus Goetz, based on the novel Washington Square by Henry James.
Adapted from the novel ‘Washington Square’ by Henry James, ‘The Heiress’ explores the life of the wealthy Sloper family, living in an opulent house in 1850’s New York City. Catherine Sloper, daughter of a protective widowed surgeon, lacks both social graces and beauty, unlike her deceased mother. Catherine falls in love with handsome Morris Townsend, the first man to ever give her attention. She believes her love is reciprocated but Dr Sloper is doubtful, believing Morris is only interested in the family inheritance.
