Description

Full Length Musical

FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

Based on Melvyn Bragg's stirring novel of rural and industrial working life early in the twentieth century, The Hired Man tells of one family's-- Bragg's grandparents'-- journey from land laborers to colliers and back to the land. The superb score is a marvelous succession of chorales, operatic duets and vigorous foot stomping rhythms.

Melvyn Bragg's qualities as a novelist - humanity, idealism and a complex and highly articulate man's understanding of those who are simple and inarticulate - shine out from the musical." - Sunday Telegraph
