The Works Of Stanley Houghton

William Stanley Houghton (1881 – 1913) was an English playwright. He was a prominent member of a group known as the Manchester School of dramatists. Houghton's greatest success came with his play Hindle Wakes, which was first performed by Horniman's company at the Aldwych Theatre, London, on 16 June 1912. It had a long run in London, and remains his best known work. Following the success of Hindle Wakes, Houghton left his office job in 1912 to become a full-time dramatist and moved to London. Here he became part of the city's dramatic and literary culture. His plays are set locally in Northern England, but represent universal aspects of human nature.
