Richard Nelson

Published by Faber & Faber

6 Male 2 Female

Harley Granville Barker - the most influential theatre-maker of his time - finds himself adrift in America during the Great War

Estranged from the theatre, and with his spirit almost broken by an acrimonious divorce, he seeks refuge in the relative obscurity of a quiet, backwater - Williamstown, Massachusetts

He finds comfort in the congeniality of his fellow refugees and in the courtesy of strangers

And gradually begins to regain his faith in humanity and his belief in the central role of Theatre in the civilised community

Olivier Award Winner Richard Nelson's elegant and passionate play examines a world full of loss, disenchantment and disillusion

But also a world where Art has the power to heal, to liberate, and to bind us together
