Morality Play

by Barry Unsworth

Morality Play Synopsis

It is the late fourteenth century, a dangerous time beset by war and plague.

What better way to increase their takings than to make a new play, to enact the murder of Thomas Wells? But as the actors rehearse, they discover that the truth about the boy's death has yet to be revealed...
