Corn is Green

Corn is Green

by Emlyn Williams

One person can make all the difference.

Miss Lily Moffat arrives in rural North Wales, determined to help young local miners out of poverty by teaching them to read and write.

Lily soon spots talent in the unruly Morgan Evans, but when she faces growing resistance from the community, she does everything in her power to forge him a new future.

A revival of The Corn is Green was staged at the National Theatre in 2022, directed by Dominic Cooke and featuring Nicola Walker as the visionary miss Moffat.
