Synopsis


"It's ‘ardly worth while to do these winders.


You clean'em, and they're dirty again in no time.


It's like life.


And people talk o' progress.


What a sooperstition!"


1922. In the aftermath of the First World War, Britain is left questioning the relevance of the ideals and values for which it fought, but which society seems to have forgotten.


When writer Geoffrey March proposes to his family that they employ a young woman with a questionable past as their new maid, his high-minded ideals are suddenly challenged by those around him.


Finding support for his beliefs in the girl's father, a philosophical window cleaner, he follows the path which he believes to be decent and moral.


But when his son begins to fall in love with her, the family discover that ideals can have serious consequences …


Described by John Galsworthy as "a comedy for idealists and others", Windows is a fascinating exploration of class and of a generation struggling to catch up with their lives in a world that has been altered forever by war.
