Master Sunshine by PETER RUSSELL with Christopher Good
Gerald Flood, William Eedle
Beyond this great house and the broad acres surrounding it there are mean little dwellings and those that live in them work very hard, and their lives are passed in terrible misery and they become brutish. But there are those who remain good and they will go to heaven with you and me, and that is a wonderful consolation to them.' The action takes place in the years before the First World War.
