The Hired Man

by Melvyn Bragg

Set against the Cumbrian landscape at the turn of the last century, John and his new wife Emily start their life together working on the land. But as John becomes preoccupied with his toil, his wife is increasingly isolated and finds comfort with another man. This rich and gorgeously melodic musical follows the lives, loves and losses of one family over two generations. The Hired Man is a deeply moving love story and a powerful social drama illustrating the courage, humour and heartache of a proud community struggling against injustice on the land and down the mines before and after the first world war.
