A Warwickshire Testimony PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

A Warwickshire Testimony free pdf The past: the 'big house', the servant class, the close-knit family ties of a bygone generation. Rural idyll or claustrophobic hellhole? Desperate to get away from her family and from a culture where everybody knows everything about everybody, Edie moves out but can she ever manage to move on? The present: big business and incomers, no shops and no locals, where nothing stays the same for five minutes and where the 'quaintness' of the cottages is all that's left of village life. For better or for worse? April de Angelis' funny and compassionate new play powerfully illustrates a rapidly changing way of life by focusing on the loves, traumas and disputes of one Midlands family throughout the twentieth century.
