  • Overview
    Set in Edinburgh in the late 19th century, the play seizes on the familiar idea of the city as a uniquely divided one, part glittering centre of reason and learning, part sewer of crumbling medieval slums, prostitution and degradation. The play's hero, John Cloon, and his friend Gilbert Chanterelle, are young men of science interested in public health; but while the widowed Cloon's reforming idealism remains intact – finding expression in his growing love for his remarkable housekeeper, Hannah – Chanterelle's more affair with a servant girl ends in cynicism and despair.
