Young, middle-class Londoner John has come to York to direct an amateur version of the Mystery Plays and falls in love with farm lad George who is cast in the play. Has George the courage to leave his chapel-going roots and move to London with John? The play is not only a finely drawn love story but also makes us think about the depths of class allegiances, the’strength of the family and the tension between country life and the cosmopolitan city before the ’60s really began to swing.
