  • Overview
    The play is set in the fictional mill town of Hindle, and concerns two young people who are discovered to have been having what would now be called a "dirty weekend" during their holiday, during the town's wakes week. Their families pressure them to get married, but the young woman refuses.

    It seemed quite a controversial and subversive piece at the time it was written.
