The Corn Is Green
by Emlyn Williams
Pre-1947, date and venue unknown
Miss Lily Moffat arrives in rural North Wales in the late 19th century, determined to help young local miners out of poverty by teaching them to read and write.
Lily soon spots talent in the unruly Morgan Evans, but when she faces growing resistance from the community, she does everything in her power to forge him a new future.
Emlyn Williams’ semi-autobiographical play was later made into a film starring Bette Davis.
