Diana of Dobson's is a 1908 feminist play by Cicely Hamilton. It was revived at the Orange Tree Theatre at Richmond in 2007, with a cast including Edward Bennett.[1]


Diana is an under-paid worker in an Edwardian department store in Clapham and, when she inherits £300 unexpectedly, she spends it on a holiday at a holiday resort in Switzerland. Pretending to be a wealthy widow, she finds herself pursued by an impecunious ex-guardsman and his predatory aunt.
