Spring And Port Wine


Bill Naughton

Directed by Edward Wilson

15th - 18 April, 1970

Rafe Crompton rules his wife, Daisy, and their four children with a rod of iron. Yet the tide is turning: Florence has found love with a local sheet metal worker; Hilda wants to stay out late like the other girls; while Wilf and Harold have their hearts set on a place of their own away from Rafeís strict regime. Itís Hilda who finally tires of their overbearing father when she refuses to eat the herring served to her at dinner. How could such a small rebellion cause events to snowball so far out of control?
