By Edward Bond.
Cast: 8m., 5w. Edward Bond has set this play in the eighteenth century and calls it "a pastoral." It comes complete with an arranged marriage, a restless wife and a family ghost. It draws pointed contrasts between life above stairs and life below, between the town and the country, between the landed gentry and the emergent middle class. It was originally produced at the Royal Court Theatre in London. Optional music available from London Management and Representation. Multiple sets or area staging.
