The Promise archiveIt's the beginning of World War I and Herbert Samuel, the first practising Jew ever to sit in a British Cabinet, dreams of using British power to back a return of the Jews to Palestine after 1800 years. However, his cousin, Edwin Montagu, also in the Cabinet, and also Jewish, is implacably opposed to the idea, a conflict complicated by Montagu's passion for the young beautiful aristocrat, Venetia Stanley, a confidante of the Prime Minister, Herbert Asquith. As Venetia's developing relationship with Montagu threatens the status quo, personal and political concerns become increasingly tangled. World Premiere
