    19th Century
  • Overview
    ‘The Heiress of the Cane Fields’ lovingly traces the impact of merciless but necessary 19th century progress on an apparently idyllic rural community. Lives are lost, wealth is created, industrialisation assured, the weak sacrificed and a precious way of life lost forever. In his epic novel Julio Dinis is inspired by a rural and fast changing world and this is shown to be as difficult as it is healing and wholesome. In her play, and through rich characterisation, powerful dramatic drive and incisive humour, Alice de Sousa creates a heart rending depiction of humanity in all its magnificence and foibles.
