  • Overview
    The Corn Is Green is a semi-autobiographical play by Emlyn Williams.

    At its core is L. C. Moffat, a strong-willed English school teacher working in a small poverty-stricken coal mining town. After struggling to win the local Welsh miners over to her English ways, an illiterate teenager, by the name of Morgan Evans eventually graduates with honors.

    The play premiered in London at the Duchess Theatre in 1938 with Williams portraying Morgan Evans.
