A Corridor of Mirrors by ARCHIE HILL
Adapted from his novel of the same title with Anthony Jackson as Jack Furmstone and Rosalind Shanks as Nancy ' But when the props go quiet, when they no longer whisper, it's like a man who's over-stretched, overcalculated ... The wood sends out warnings to the pitmen, tells 'em to get clear.'
The setting is the Black Country in the late 20s, early 30s; the anti-hero an out-of-work pitman.
