A Time to Keep

By Stephanie Dale and David Edgar

Paperback £8.99£7.19

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.

Press Quotes

'beautiful and memorable... theatre at its fundamental level: a shared, imaginative experience, communicated with winning passion'

Guardian

'wonderfully vivid... a powerful evocation of the way provincial England, far from the madding crowd, is still deeply haunted by its own past'
