Roses of Eyam at St Mary's

Roses of Eyam is a remarkable drama telling the true story of the Derbyshire village struck down by Plague in the seventeenth century because of the arrival of a box of infected clothing from London.

Written by Don Taylor, the play shows the determination of the villagers, persuaded by their former and present rectors, to prevent the disease spreading by resolutely staying in their village, thus containing the plague, albeit at the risk of their own lives. Humour and pathos combine to show that the villagers idealism is matched only by the courage of their actions.

Four performances will be presented by The Television Workshop at St Mary’s Church High Pavement from Tuesday 24th to Friday 27th March at 7.30pm.
