And did the Countenance Divine

Shine forth upon our clouded hills?

And was Jerusalem builded here

Among these dark Satanic Mills?

 

William Blake

 

 

England 1823

The Industrial Revolution and a changing world.

Helen works their farm alone

while her husband toils in the factories of an industrialised Manchester.

As the harsh winter bites

Helen realises it’s not only the world that's changing.


It's her.

 

An exploration of the challenges faced by a 19th century working woman

as she attempts to navigate a changing world ... and a changing life.
