It's 1930, and the streets of London are teeming with homeless, money-grubbing men and women, washed up in the wake of the General Strike. The bars and cafes are full of seedy chancers and girls who will forget their mothers' warnings for the price of a mutton-chop supper. Through this moral wasteland strides Harold Davidson, country clergyman, prototypical social worker and impulsive saver of souls; an unlikely Messiah with a mission to find young women straying down the primrose path to Hell, and pull them back, by any means available. But Harold's ethical certainties become increasingly precarious and disaster begins to seem inevitable . . . Starting from the few known facts about the real-life Rector of Stiffkey, John Walsh has fashioned a tale of integrity and corruption, decency and sin; an entertainment by turns farcical, shocking and tragic.
