Synopsis


One person can make all the difference


Miss Lily Moffat arrives in rural North Wales, determined to help young local miners out of poverty by teaching them to read and write.


Lily soon spots talent in the unruly Morgan Evans, but when she faces growing resistance from the community, she does everything in her power to forge him a new future.


A sensation when it first premiered, Emlyn Williams' semi-autobiographical play, is given a bold new staging by director Dominic Cooke (Follies) in its first London revival for 35 years.
