  • Overview
    In the North Staffordshire Potteries in the 1930's, Jessie Frost works for a small traditional firm, hand painting traditional designs in the time honoured fashion... until the arrival of Jim Rhys as the firm's new art director. A man possessed with both high ambition and strong views of the future, Jim's views on design create tension with the factory owner, and his political beliefs gradually lead him into conflict within the small community. But in Jessie Frost, Jim recognises a special talent, one which he promptly sets out to nurture though not necessarily with her blessings. The result is a play of great warmth, charm, passion and grace, an exploration of the true nature of the art of politics, and the politics of art.
