St. John Ervine introduces the Liverpool Repertory Company in an excerpt from his play. The scene is the living-room of St. Michael and All Angels Vicarage, Combermere, an industrial town in the South of England.
A special performance before an invited audience from the Playhouse Theatre, Liverpool, by arrangement with the Liverpool Repertory Theatre, Ltd.
The Rev. Robert Carson's wife is a doctor, the head of a local clinic that she is determined to expand, despite the opposition of some of the local clergy and though any controversy is likely to diminish Robert's chances of becoming a Dean - chances that are not enhanced by the fanatical pacifism of his young son Bob. The Bishop, who has a high regard for the Carsons and who is pressing for Robert's appointment, has joined with them, in the first act, in persuading a harassed mother to permit her son's marriage to a slut 'for the sake of the child'. The working out - or rather the swift conclusion - of this incident during the televised excerpt points the irony of this taut and provocative play.
