The Heiress is presented as readers theatre by The Autumn Players.

In this intimate family drama, class and gender tensions in the genteel society of mid-19th century N.Y.C. are exposed, when a plain and naïve young woman falls in love with someone her father suspects of fortune hunting. Is this charming young man’s ardent interest sincere, or is he the gold-digging wastrel her unloving father suspects him to be?
