Summary
Mrs. Thornley works very hard without notice or appreciation. Every day she keeps her own house clean, attends to her husband and unmarried daughter, Ann, then cleans other women's houses. She looks tired and has little affect. Mrs. Thornley's husband works nights, except for Saturdays, when he expects conjugal attention. Ann's worried about pregnancy and talks to her mum about labour and childbrith. Emotionally horrific yet oddly amusing, "Hard Labour" is a scathing indictment of classism and sexism made all the more powerful by a surprising appearance by Ben Kingsley as a friendly cab driver
