Morality Play/Unsworth, Barr/Paper/0140175741/S048-C1
It is the late-fourteenth century, a time beset by war and plague. Nicholas Barber, a young and wayward cleric, stumbles across a group of travelling players and compounds his sins by joining them. Yet the town where they perform reveals another drama: a young woman is to be hanged for the murder of a twelve-year-old by. What better way to increase their takings than to make a new play, to enact the murder of Thomas Wells? But as the actors rehearse, they discover that the truth about the boy's death has yet to be revealed... Shortlisted for the 1995 Booker Prize.
