"Mornng Sacrifice is set in the staff room of the Easthaven Girls' High School, on the eve of the secod world war. Dymphna Cusack's skill at characterization and the creating of escalating tension make the play a fascinating study in day to day routine which is stripped away to reveal a hall of horrors, built on nastiness and hypocrisy. The action alternates between comedy and horror as the teachers (all women) battle tooth and nail for the good of the pupils and the reputation of the school."
