Granville Sharp (1735-1813) worked for years to have it publicly declared that a slave, as soon as he set foot on English soil, became free. The story of how he came to take up the cause of the slaves is told in three episodes. First, Sharp meets the blind Negro Jonathan. Second, Jonathan is kidnapped by his old master and flung into prison. Third, as he has not been charged with an offence, Jonathan is delivered from prison but learns that he is still a slave.

The action of this play covers thirty years (1865 to 1895) in the life of a Welsh family in what George Borrow called ' the iron and coal capital of the world '. There were twin sisters, daughters of a miner-Megan steadfast and loyal, Moriah all show. The story not only reveals their very different temperaments, but tells how each of them has a strong appeal for Shon Howell , the cheapjack.
Clifford Evans , Cardiff born, has had a distinguished career in the theatre on both sides of the Atlantic, and starred in the film Love on the Dole. Rachel Thomas co-starred with Paul Robeson in Proud Valley.
