The Corn Is Green
One person can make all the difference.
Miss Lily Moffat arrives in rural North Wales, determined to help young local miners out of poverty by teaching them to read and write.
Lily soon spots talent in the unruly Morgan Evans, but when she faces growing resistance from the community, she does everything in her power to forge him a new future.
Emlyn Williams’ semi-autobiographical play is given a bold new staging by director Dominic Cooke (The Normal Heart, Follies) in its first London revival for 35 years.
Nicola Walker (Unforgotten, The Split) plays the visionary Miss Moffat.
