House Under Green Shadows


  • Playwright

    Maurice G. Meldon 

  • Setting

    Set in the study of Tullakeevan House in the Summer of 1949.

  • Synopsis

    Florence and Edward Carten are brother and sister and a gulf of mistrust lies between them. It's 1910. Tullakeevan House, a big house in the old tradition, is falling asunder; the lake is full of rushes, the orchard full of brambles and trees and weeds are masters of all. Edward is struggling with time, taxes and a new social order whilst Florence's mind fails to recover from a thwarted love affair from forty years ago.
