A Time to Keep
A large-scale historical romp in the terrain between Jane Austen and Charles Dickens - co-written by David Edgar, Britain's leading political playwright.
Set against the backdrop of the threatened Napoleonic invasion of 1804, A Time to Keep is the story of an unlikely but passionate romance between a well-born but feisty young woman and the youngest son of a family of notorious smugglers.
