    The Roses of Eyam by Don Taylor

February 2002

 

The moving and true story of a Derbyshire village stricken with plague through the arrival of a box of clothing from London.

 

The play told of the determination of the villagers, under the persuasion of the past and present rectors ‘puritan and king’s man’ to prevent the spread of the plague to other villages by remaining in Eyam and containing

the disease at the certain risk of their own lives.

 

The play contained something for everyone with its local connections, the interactions between the members of the families caught up in the

tragedy and the message of hope for the future which will live in the mind long after the final curtain.
