When Parson Davis decided to have a well dug at the bottom of his garden it seemed a good and sensible thing to do. In the year 1867, in a remote country parish, there was no piped water for the village, only ponds which dried up and a fountain at the crossroads, half a mile away.
It also seemed sensible, and kind, to give the job of digging the well to three poor labourers, brothers, all of whom badly needed work, instead of to Mr. Jarvis, the prosperous master mason. How do you set about making a well? Let Mr. Jarvis answer: "You have to keep on digging till you come to water. If you're boring through clay, or clay and loam mixed with gravel, that's easy - you can make do with a few boards on the way down. But if you come to loose sand, you have to wall it all in with struts and crossbeams to keep the sand from falling in on top of you." The brothers did come to sand, thirty feet down, and it fell in on top of them. The play this afternoon tells the story of what happened next. (Rex Tucker)
