A beautiful, heart-breaking love story

Early 1960s, Yorkshire. Farm labourer George is cast in an amateur staging of the York Mystery Plays. His world is shaken when he falls for metropolitan assistant director, John.

It is a time long past. The attitudes are coloured by a life lived with hard graft, and without the light and love necessary to leaven it.

A finely drawn love story, the play is a touching reflection on the complexities of family, class, and the origins of art.
