Afternoon Drama

David Gooderson's play is based on the true story of the Devonshire village of Hallsands. In January 1917, the village was swept into the sea by ferocious storms. The underlying cause was not the weather, but the dredging of the beach for gravel by government contractors. The 25 families left homeless faced a long and bitter struggle for compensation.
