A battle of wits between Cromwell and John Milton, by the well-known actor Jack Shepherd.

1656. Two revolutionaries meet in the woods at Hampton Court: the blind poet, John Milton, and his long-term comrade, Oliver Cromwell. But after the bitter ravages of revolution, regicide and civil war, freedom is hard to come to terms with.

Jack Shepherd's play Through a Cloud was first staged at the Drum Theatre, Plymouth, in 2004.
