About
Early in World War II, William Beech is moves to live with Tom Oakley in rural Dorset.[1] Oakley, a reclusive curmudgeon has been a solitary resident for 40 years since he became a widower and lost his infant son; Beech is an illiterate, bruised, and starving Deptford evacuee. Oakley meets Beech’s needs physically and emotionally until Beech's mother calls for his return to London.

In the second act, Beech is back in Deptford as the Blitz continues around him. With no father figure (his father had died several years earlier), his mother,
"
a militant Christian of the fire-and-brimstone variety,
"
again influences his emotional demise as she abusively raises a
"
found
"
baby daughter.
