Author Dame Ivy Compton-Burnett, D.B.E., was born in 1884 in Pinner, England, the seventh child of a leading homeopathic physician, Dr James Compton Burnett. She was the first child of his second marriage; her mother, Katharine Compton Burnett, was a beautiful, delicate, imaginative, imperious and highly competitive woman who had met her future husband as his patient, and fallen passionately in love with him. Their devotion was mutual and, when Dr Burnett's first wife died in childbirth, he remarried so promptly that Ivy was born less than two years after her last half brother. Her mother inherited five small stepchildren (one had already died in infancy), ranging in age from eight years old down to the new baby, and over the next fifteen years she bore seven more of her own. The Burnett family moved to a large house on the south coast at Hove, Sussex, although Dr. Burnett spent the greater part of each week in town, immersed in the demands of a rapidly expanding London practice. Katharine Compton Burnett, who was easily bored by domesticity, found herself without outside contacts or adult company in a household full of increasing numbers of her own and her hated predecessor's offspring. She was unable to bear the loneliness and frustration of the solitude and the children, competing for attention and affection, had to submit to the steadily more tyrannical rule of an unchecked, unquestioned, unhappy and peremptory autocrat.

A Heritage and its History
Now that Julian Mitchell has adapted an Ivy Compton-Burnett novel to the stage, it seems strange that this has not been done before. The novels are written in dialogue form, in concise, gnomic phrases, arid on the page, and the living actors humanise the speeches and at the same time make clear who has spoken. The characters are sealed off from the world , like ornamental fish in a small glass container, and the story is like a fairytale without a fairy, made up or retold by a Victorian governess. Simon Challoner, boldly played by Alan Howard, irritated his uncle, Sir Edwin, by constantly expressing impatience for the day when he would inherit the estate. Few human habitations remain draped with such a weight of tradition as this place in Wiltshire. In old age, purely for company, Sir Edwin married a comparatively young woman and Simon, strangely lacking in foresight, went to bed with her. There was no excuse. Small as was their world, Lady Challoner had a younger sister - who, in her turn, was very useful to Simon later on. A boy was born and Sir Edwin calmly acknowledged him and made him his heir. The displaced Simon married his uncle's sister-in-law and had a family. Twenty-four years later his son by Lady Challoner and his daughter by her sister wanted to get married. The situation was Greek in its awful simplicity. The two families were assembled and Simon, his back to the audience, explained to them the difficulty. His brother, Walter, kept shyly in the picture by Christopher Guinee, wished for Shakespeare to do justice to the scene, but, nowadays only Miss Compton-Burnett's dialogue could cope with it.

Elizabeth Blackwell was born in 1810. She had a burning ambition to become doctor and hence she tried but ultimately failed to be admitted to a British Medical School. After this she applied to Geneva Medical School, New York, where initially her application was regarded as a source of amusement. However, in 1849 she became the first woman to complete a course of study at a medical college and receive the M.D. degree. She later returned to Britain where she attended Bedford College for one year in 1857. Ivy Compton Burnett was born in 1884. She attended Royal Holloway College from the years 1902 to 1906, where she studied Classics. Her first novel, Dolores, was published in 1911. It has been argued that this book was influenced heavily by the time she spent at Royal Holloway as it was set in a women's college. Between 1925 and her death in 1969 she wrote a further twenty five novels and in 1967 she was made a Dame for her services to literature.
