The Lord’s Lieutenant
A play by William Douglas Home
The calm serenity, and perhaps complacency, of life in a peaceful English village is suddenly disturbed by the arrival of a pop star, actually invited by the Vicar to take part in a dialogue in church. Some of the congregation are shocked – some feel the faith that their ancestors lived and died for to be threatened. But the pop star’s arguments have an appeal for the new and young generation, and he has a very personal appeal for one rather special member of the congregation.
