The Corn Is Green

Olney Theatre, Olney, Maryland (14-28 June 1949)

Appearing as Will Hughes

A play by Emlyn Williams.

Miss Moffat, an English spinster, settles in a Welsh mining village where she starts a school for the boys of the neighborhood. Morgan Evans shows promise and Miss Moffat determines to do everything possible for him. Against the prejudice of local folk and the wealthy squire, she manages to make good, and in Morgan she finds a young man who will go far. She at last persuades the squire to lend his support and she prepares the boy to apply for a scholarship to Oxford. Morgan, however, rebels against help from a woman, and temporarily succumbs to the charm of a flashy girl. His mistaken sense of obligation nearly ruins his chances of success, and Miss Moffat realizes that her interest in him has become too absorbing. However, her affection for him, her courage and wisdom, in the end bring her to victory; Morgan wins the scholarship, and Miss Moffat's work comes to a happy conclusion.
