Short Synopsis

The true story of a small Derbyshire village that was hit by the plague in the autumn of 1665. The new rector William Mompesson persuaded the villagers almost single-handed to stay cut off from the world in order to stop the plague spreading throughout the county, and over the next 13 months 267 of the 350-strong community died. Within this story of sacrifice and heroism we see how the self-imposed isolation affected the community’s individuals. Despite the enormity of the tragedy, this is a life-affirming and still relevant drama, set to powerful music.
