A little background reading...

The Channel 4 website has a very useful minisite which provides a broad overview of Edwardian life, ranging from the politics of the time to how servants should behave. Find it here:

It also struck me that the women's Suffrage movement of the time resonates with some of the play's themes - gender identity, the perceived differences between men and women - so here is some background info on their struggle:
